London: Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack is set to make a comeback at Stamford Bridge when his Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen faces Chelsea on September 13.

Bayer Leverkusen and Chelsea are in Group E of the Champions League.

The last Ballack played for Chelsea was when he limped off the Wembley pitch after a dreadful challenge in the 2010 FA Cup final against Portsmouth.

“I never had the chance to say goodbye officially, because after that last game we were still talking about a new contract and I thought we would come together,” a leading daily quoted Ballack, as saying.

“Before, when I came here, I was a talent with a little bit of experience but nothing more,” he added.
