Drogba: This Champions League for everyone connected to Chelsea. Past and present

Chelsea icon Didier Drogba hailed their resilience after last night's amazing Champions League triumph. The Blues beat Bayern Munich 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out after the final at the Allianz Arena had finished 1-1 after extra-time.

Drogba said of his team-mates: "They never give up until the end. This team is amazing."

The Ivory Coast international added of the victory on ITV: "It was written, I think, a long time ago.

"I want to dedicate this cup to all the managers we've had before, all the players I've played with before."

Drogba also hailed the performance of goalkeeper Petr Cech, who saved a penalty from Arjen Robben in extra-time and then also played a key part as Bayern missed twice in the shoot-out.

"When we have this guy in goal you have to believe," Drogba said.
