Ballack has point to prove


According to VfB Stuttgart midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger, Michael Ballack has a big point to prove to his new Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari. Ballack has shown in Euro 2008 that he is in good form.

"Michael will want to prove a point against Scolari," said the VfB Stuttgart midfielder. "It's good for him to play against his new manager at Chelsea and show him what he can do.

"He's in good form and I'm sure he'll show his qualities again.

"It's difficult to say who is the best player in the world, but Michael is definitely one of them. He's got enough experience to get us through, he's played in all the big games."
