No Cup joy for Desailly; FOOTBALL: CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PREVIEW.

CHELSEA's overseas star Marcel Desailly has revealed that the English game leaves him cold.

The pounds 4.6m French central defender said he never watches the FA Cup final and can't even get excited about taking on Newcastle in the last four.

World Cup winner Desailly said: "I haven't got an English football culture.

"I have played at Wembley once with France and so what? The Cup finals, I don't watch them. It doesn't say anything to me."

Desailly also suggested he could not rule out a move back to Marseille, the team Chelsea face tonight in the Champions League.
