Demba Ba: I was happy for Chelsea pals winning Europa League

Demba Ba admits he was envious looking on as his Chelsea teammates celebrated winning the Europa League last week.

One frustration for Ba was having to sit out the Blues' Europa League success last week having been cup-tied playing for Newcastle United before his £7million move.

The 28-year-old said: "It was frustrating but I knew that from the beginning, so I was happy for the club.

"It was the same with the manager - we knew it from the beginning he was leaving.

"We knew if we won it he was going to go, we were prepared for that."
