Despite mainly focusing on defending, the Blues managed to beat Barca 3-2 on aggregate to book their ticket for the showpiece against Bayern Munich, but the Germany legend hopes that their negative approach will not lead to further success.

He added: "I can only condemn Chelsea's style of football. If this kind of football becomes fashionable, I might never go to a stadium again.
"I could never support a philosophy that only cares about the result. For me, the combination of playing entertaining football with exciting individuals and being successful is always the ultimate goal.
"That's also why I want Bayern to win the Champions League final rather than Chelsea."
Bayern lock horns with Chelsea at the Allianz Arena on May 19.
