On this day, May 19, 2012, Chelsea won the UEFA Champions League final.

The manager [André Villas-Boas] had been sacked by the board and the players had a team meeting where they concluded they were part of his exit from the club [as a result of multiple game losses].

The captain at the time, John Terry spoke, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech and other leaders in the club too.

The players decided to give this competition [UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE – UCL] everything they’ve got in them despite losing 4-1 against the Italian side, Napoli [Chelsea returned with 4 – 1, which ended 5 – 4 aggregate].

Chelsea had been chasing the Champions League trophy for eight years and couldn’t do better than runner up [They even lost final match to Manchester United in 2008].

The players finally agreed to put their egos aside and just find a way to place the ball into the net.

[Didier] – After the meeting, I asked a young 23-year-old Juan Mata; “Please Maestro, help me with the Champions League”

He looked at me like; “Man, you’re crazy, you’re Didier Drogba and you are gonna help me win it”

[Didier] I told him I’ve been here eight years and never won it so I believe you’re the one who’s going to help us win it this time.

“I’ll even give you a present if we win it, that was the end of February,” said Drogba.

[Drogba] “Three months later, we were in Munich, in the final, in Allianz Arena, submerged with a red wave.”

“Bayern Munich took the lead with 8 minutes to go and on my [Drogba] way to walkthrough the last 8 minutes, I was so discouraged. Juan Mata then said to me [Drogba]; “Believe Didi, you have to believe” almost in tears I answered after looking at the time board “BELIEVE IN WHAT?!” It’s almost over, I’m gonna cry for months like when I lost the final with Côte d’Ivoire.

Last minute, last corner of the game, basically the only corner Chelsea had in the match, Juan Mata took the corner.

It was a goal! Chelsea had equalized in the last minute of the game [Drogba performed the wonder! Beautiful HEADER – A reciprocate of Muller’s].

This took Chelsea to the extra time. In-between, during the extra time, Didier caused a penalty for Bayern Munich which ended him a yellow card also. The atmosphere was tensed, Drogba was almost going mental. PENALTY PLAYED!! SAVED!!! Petr Cech saved the Argen Robben’s penalty kick.

Hope for the English side to battle the trophy got sauced!. Extra time ended on draw from both sides and it was straight to the penalty kick.

– PENALTY KICK –

Mata lost his kick, Lahm scored his.

After series of saves and kicks, the final kick was played by Didier Drogba, he played it into the net as calmly as possible.

In a blink of an eye Chelsea had become the CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE!!!

Drogba cried tears of joy, hugged his teammates Torres, Cech, Lampard, Mata just to mention a few.
