Chelsea were viewed by many as underdogs since the start of the season with the prospect they could fall out from the group stage.
Granted, they managed to qualify to the next phase when they clashed with Atlectico Madrid. It was the moment people thought their end has drawn near.
Then again, they successfully kicked At_ Madrid in grand style. From there, the Blues went pass the likes of Porto, Real Madrid and finally reaching the final where they were to play against Manchester City.
Nobody thought the Blues could come this far let alone become champions of Europe.
There's no exaggeration to say that the boys have fought a hard fight. There's no question they deserve what they achieved.
Remember, at one time Tuchel said, "I want to build a team that nobody wants to play against." This has proven true by the way he sets up the players.
Indeed it was a deserved win. No two ways about that.
Please leave a comment.
Prior to yesterday night, Manchester City had lost to Chelsea twice. It was obvious Pep Guardiola came into the game to win.
However, the best tactician across Europe, Thomas Tuchel outsmarted him again by snatching the trophy from his hand.
