Chelsea keeper Cech excited to be in Europa League final

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech loves the idea of winning back-to-back European titles.

Chelsea face Benfica tonight in the Europa League final.

"So far it's the highlight of my career because it was the Champions League final and with all the success I've had with the club, it was special having lost the final in 2008," the 30-year-old goalkeeper said.

"Sometimes you don't get a second chance. We got a second chance and we took it.

"It was a fantastic story and that's why it ended the way it ended. It was just meant to be like that.

"Winning back-to-back European trophies, it would be a great story too, with more or less the same circumstances, having to change the manager during the course of the season again. Hopefully it will be the same end."
