Chelsea ace Ballack: Pretty football does not win prizes

He said: “I don’t necessarily agree with the opinion about attractive football.

“And I don’t share the opinion that Arsenal are more attractive than Chelsea.

“But I’ve experienced something similar before — between Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich.

“At Leverkusen, we played attractive football and we didn’t win anything there.

“You might play more attractively but you might take risks and lose and success is all about winning.”
