Nicolas Anelka believes Chelsea have the quality to win the Champions League this season and is ready to bide his time on the bench or the wing to start his trophy haul with the club.

Anelka, 29, returns to former club Fenerbahce as Avram Grant´s men look to seize the initiative in their Champions League quarter-final, with the France striker having come full circle since he left Istanbul.

"Like Real Madrid we are a big club with a big squad and big players," he said. "It´s always difficult to win the Champions League but I think we have the quality to win this title because of the way we play and the number of big players we have."
