(Images): Chelsea players remember Champions League glory

It was a big day for Chelsea today, with the squad returning to training for the first time in two months – but it was also 19/05.

That’s the anniversary of the Blues’ Champions League win in 2012, if you didn’t know, and to celebrate the club’s Youtube channel played the game back from the 80th minute, including the epic penalty shootout.

All kinds of former players and coaches were chiming in with their memories of the game on Twitter, basking in the remembered glory of that night in Munich.

Didier Drogba even told a whole story about how Juan Mata had inspired him – and then whipped in the late corner for him to score from.

It really took us back to that glorious day, and at a time like this, it’s best to keep your best memories at the front of your mind.

You can see a selection of their Tweets below:


“Bolton away finished Piqué’s career at United. He was young and got bullied there. I always remember Vidic would be in the gym for two or three days before Bolton, pumping himself up.” – Who revealed this about Sir Alex’s United? Find out in the top sports newsletter here.
