Hull forward Geovanni has warned Chelsea to prepare for defeat on Wednesday and also claimed only a "massive" offer could prise him away from the Tigers.

The Brazilian has been one of the stars of Hull's stunning start to the season, netting four goals to lift the club to third in the Barclays Premier League.

The 28-year-old told "Big clubs should be wary of us because we are going to continue to surprise them. Chelsea will be next after Arsenal. The Blues have a tremendous squad but they just lost to Liverpool, which is a blow for their morale, so let's take advantage of it."

He added: "[Luiz Felipe] Scolari is a top coach and I do not doubt he will be a success at Chelsea, but I feel sorry for him because we are going to beat his team."

Geovanni has not lived up to his enormous potential since moving to Europe, failing to establishing himself with European giants Barcelona and Benfica.

He was even recently named in Barcelona's worst team of the past 20 years after a poll by a Spanish newspaper.

Yet his recent performances have revived interest in his talents and seen him linked with other clubs, but he insists he is happy in East Yorkshire.

He added: "I do not worry about rumours surrounding my future, and possible interest in my services. I feel good at Hull and only a massive offer could make me want to move on.

"Hull's squad is the example of how players and their coach should work hand in hand. The sky is the limit for us and we target European qualification.

"I have matured a lot and I am a different person from the one who played for Barcelona and Benfica. And The Premier League is the best in the world to me at the moment!"
