Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer spoke to Bleacher Report after making his Champions League debut for the Blues in a 1-0 victory over Steaua Bucharest at Stamford Bridge this week.

The Australian goalkeeper explained he was happy to have kept a clean sheet against the Romanians, but suggested nothing more than success in the Champions League will satisfy the high demands at Stamford Bridge this season.

"It was fantastic to be part of playing in the Champions League," he said. "I feel very privileged and very honored to be part of it.

"[...] It's all about winning titles [at Chelsea]. The demand is to be competitive in all competitions, to try and win every competition. The Champions League is no different."
