Anelka happy to win first trophy as Chelsea player

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka was delighted to win his first trophy since moving to Stamford Bridge.

Anelka was pleased to play his part in the FA Cup final triumph with Chelsea after missing the decisive penalty in last year's Champions League Final in the last kick of the season.

"Yes, finally," he said. "It was a good way of thanking Mr Hiddink."

His 19 league goals also won Anelka the Golden Boot award.
