Antonio Conte’s side will face Atletico Madrid, AS Roma and Qarabag as they make a return to Europe’s elite competition after one season away.
The most interesting tie will of course be against the La Liga outfit, with many reports over the last few weeks of Diego Costa attempting to force through a move from Stamford Bridge to Diego Simeone’s side.
However Ferreria, who attended the draw as a Chelsea ambassador, brushed off talk that the Atletico game is any bigger than the Blues other ties in the group.
And the former defender also claimed that Chelsea should be aiming to win this season’s competition despite their tough group.
Ferreira told BT Sport: “It’s a tough group like all the other groups, but the most important thing is to be back again to this competition and we’re really happy to be here again.
“It’s quite strange for a club like Chelsea to be out of the Champions League, it’s not good, but fortunately we’re back again and we’re happy.
“For sure it [the Atletico match] will be a tough game, just like Roma and Qarabag. We’ll give our best to go forward in this competition.
“For a club like Chelsea when you enter this competition you need to go as far as you can and possibly try to win. All top clubs are looking for that and Chelsea are a top club.
“It will be hard, but we will do our best and try. This is an important competition and of course we’ll try to go as far as we can and when you play in this competition you want to win it.”
