Delighted for Benitez. He can leave with his head held high after all the abuse he took from the so called fans.

At least they got 1... out of the possible 7 whilst spending £82.5 million on players.

Another European trophy Chelsea have robbed, worse team again but still won it... sad.

Unlucky Benfica!

No card for the handball? okay!

asmith23061261d ago

I'm not a Chelsea fan what so ever but credit where credit is due. The ref didn't give cards for a lot of incidents tonight. And as for the money, Alex Ferguson spent hundreds of millions throughout the years at Utd and only won two Champions League titles. It's not easy even for great managers to win in Europe regardless of money.

Unlucky Benfica? Maybe they shouldn't have been blazing shots over the bar all night. Lovely passing but their finishing was muck. Cech made one great save, that was it. They scored one goal, a penalty, and conceded two from bad defending. So unlucky! Please give me a bucket before you comment again!

I LOVE this comment. Yes benfica had more shots, but like half of them were from 30 or 40 yards out! When Ivanovic scored the header, that wasn't luck, it was really bad defending from Benfica's part. I mean there 3 benfica players around Ivanovic, but none of them even went for the ball, Ivanovic was the only one that jumped!

Also forgetting a dubious offside decision which would of put Benfica into the lead. Looked clearly on.

Come on it is not Chelsea Fault that Benfica did not Score from the chances they have

Final Score is the important in football not how good team is playing, Possession or chances they have score more goals wins you trophies

give credit where credit is due, yes benifica where better most of the game but chelsea went into second gear at half time

no one was robbed but as usual there are cry babies going off even though they dont even support the alleged "robbed" team

giving cards has always been on the whim of a ref...nothing has changed

we all no money does not secure success, why even bring this up?

Benfica were so much better than us in the first half, luckily their finishing was sub-par. Some might say it was undeserved, but the fact is, Benfica didn't "deserve" it either. You don't "deserve" a goal, you either get one or you don't. Chelsea got the goals, Benfica didn't...

Anyways, congrats Benitez. As the season (with benitez at the helm) went on and on, the team gelled together better and we are definitely finishing it on a high.

doncorleone1261d ago

Maybe it wasn't undeserved if we go by your logic, but Benfica were the better team and history is sadly only going to remember Chelsea as the winners...anyway congrats to Chelsea
