Chelsea won the Champions League, and it wasn’t an easy process as the Blues were not rated highly by many to win the competition.
After a flawless group stage where Chelsea topped the group with ease, Chelsea defeated Atletico Madrid in the second round, Porto in the quarter-final, Real Madrid in the semifinal before facing Manchester City.
Surprisingly, Porto star Mehdi Taremi who scored a late bicycle kick stunner in the second leg against Chelsea, had said Chelsea do not deserve a place in the final of the Champions League.
Speaking before the game, Taremi backed Man City to beat Chelsea in the final.
“Chelsea does not deserve to be in the final,” the Iranian forward said, per O Jogo.
“If we had been smarter, we could have won. Against Manchester City it was very competitive, but difficult. If everything goes smoothly, Manchester City will be the European champions.”
Sorry Taremi, Chelsea didn’t only win the Champions League, but the Blues did it in style.
