Roberto Di Matteo insists he's not out for revenge when he faces Chelsea tomorrow night.
The Schalke boss was axed by the Blues two years ago - just months after winning the Champions League in Munich.
However, the 44-year-old says he has no personal score to settle ahead of their Group G clash in Gelsenkirchen.
He said: "I have no sentiment for revenge or anything like that. I enjoyed a wonderful time there with many people and that's it.
"It's one of the biggest competitions in European football. There aren't many managers who have the chance to win it, so it's a great achievement.
"But I always said back then that the team was the most important aspect of it. I was very happy for the team, the players and the club as well. It was the first time in the club's history.”
Asked what a win would mean, Di Matteo added: "It would mean we'd get three points and would be in a very good position in the group. Nothing else."
