Juan Mata admits his first season with Chelsea went beyond his wildest expectations.

With two winners' medals already in his collection as a Chelsea player Mata is also targeting further success with both club and country if it that means he will be very busy in the next few months.

He said: "Lifting the Champions League was an unbelievable experience - the biggest club trophy you can win - and, for me, winning the Player of the Year trophy makes me feel very happy, proud and grateful.

"I could never have expected my first season to go this well. To win the FA Cup, the Champions League and the Chelsea Player of the Year, it is incredible and I am so happy, but I want more. I have the European Championships in the summer and maybe the Olympic Games as well, so, who knows, perhaps I can say that I have won nearly everything I have played in this year."
