Chelsea football Club was founded in 1905, and on this day: (19-05)-2012, the players created a name of theirselves in history book. DROGBA, CECH & the interim Coach, Di’MATTEO were heroic on this day, in each of their department. It was a night Nobody will ever forget the sheer grit, tenacity and bravery displayed by the Blues as they battled to become the first London team to lift Europe’s premier club trophy.
Chelsea won the penalty shoot-out 4-3 after the teams were tied 1-1 after extra-time.
Bayern had never lost a penalty shoot-out in Europe before. And given the track record of German teams against English in shoot-outs, few Blues supporters would have dared to believe their team would end the night dancing jigs of delight. DROGBA said: “It was written that we would win tonight and I want to dedicate the victory to all the managers and players we’ve had before. My goal changed the game. It’s fantastic. Amazing.” He continued, saying “The turning point was the save Ashley Cole did on the goal-line [from Maggio] in Naples. We would’ve been 4-1 down, all done”
Petr Cech was faultless throughout and saved an Arjen Robben penalty in extra time that would have proved Bayern’s winning goal.
RDM: “We always said it was crucial to be involved in the CL, winning puts us in next year so its double whammy in a positive sense.”
Heynckes: “If you wish me to say something about RDM it is that Chelsea should give him a three-year contract.” (ESPNStar)
