Jubilant Chelsea captain John Terry said his team had proved their doubters wrong by winning the FA Cup.
The Blues’ 2-1 victory against Liverpool at Wembley meant they got their hands on the trophy for the fourth time in six years.
And Terry told ITV: “It’s fantastic – it’s what we live for.
“We spoke about winning yesterday and we’ve had a tough competition in the FA Cup this season and we’ve won. It was a great performance.
“At times people have slated us as too old, past it or not together, but as a team we come together and unite when our backs are against the wall, and we’ve done that superbly in the last 16 or 17 games.”
