For the men’s team, the biggest win in the club’s history is the 2012 Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich, as Chelsea defied the odds to win the competition for the first time in the club’s history.

For the women’s team, Chelsea women’s team manager Emma Hayes has hailed the victory over Wolfsburg as the biggest in the club’s history.

On Wednesday, the Chelsea women secured a 3-0 away leg triumph to knock out Wolfsburg who were last year’s finalists out of the competition.

After an aggregate 5-1 victory, Hayes couldn’t hide her joy as she hailed the team’s performance and labelled the victory as the biggest, against a team that used to beat Chelsea consistently in the past.

“I said it at the end of the game, people like Drew [Spence], Hannah [Blundell], Carly [Telford], myself and Paul [Green], we’ve been here from the beginning,” Emma Hayes said.

“We’ve had to lose eight times to this team in the past, so I know how it feels. To make the progress we’ve made and showing the investment that the club has made in all of us, I think it’s the biggest win in Chelsea history, in my time here.

“The amount of endless hours my staff have put into recruitment, to all the fine details to get us to this level to make sure that when we are in this position, we can close it out, with the quality of the training, the quality of the personnel, the quality of recruitment, the quality of the analysis.

“I know that thousands of hours have gone in to getting this win today. I’m extremely proud and grateful.”
