Roberto Di Matteo paid tribute to his players – and Didier Drogba in particular – after Chelsea’s incredible triumph in Munich.
And the Italian refused to discuss his future amid calls for him to be installed as manager after leading the Blues to Champions League glory.
Di Matteo told Sky: “We have a group of players that have a big heart, passion and desire and that was the only way to achieve this trophy.
“It was an immense effort from everyone and we are very happy. Bayern is a good team and when they scored there wasn’t much time left and in a game like this you need players to rise to the occasion.
“He’s [Drogba] been incredible for this club. He scored a fantastic goal to keep us in the game and then the penalty to win it.”
