Souness: Chelsea luckiest Champions League winners EVER

Graeme Souness feels Chelsea were the luckiest ever winners of the Champions League.

The Scot can't see Chelsea doing it again this season.

Souness, a Liverpool, Rangers and Scotland legend who went on to manage in five different countries, told the Mail on Sunday: "Chelsea got away with it last season and they can't approach it the same way this time.

"It is impossible. Nobody in the history of football has ever had that much luck.

"Football is quite simple, you need to have the ball to enjoy it. Nobody enjoys watching their team rely on counter-attacking football because it means spending so much time on the back foot. Chelsea fans have enjoyed the memory of lifting the cup but they wouldn't have enjoyed the Barca and Bayern games while they were taking place."
