Branislav Ivanovic: Celebrates the winner

Ivanovic rose to head home in the final minute to give Chelsea a 2-1 win over Benfica in Amsterdam.

Fernando Torres had scored an excellent individual goal to put the Premier League outfit ahead before Oscar Cardozo levelled from the spot.

"This is one of the best moments of my career," said Ivanovic. "Winning a European final like this is a dream.

"I always said it is the team who win every title - not individuals. Even tonight we had some people missing through injury.

"But I am so happy. It is a pleasure to be part of this team. When you win one trophy, you should always want another. There is something within sport that keeps pushing you on.

"We have felt that a lot of times this season. We used it as extra motivation."

Torres added: "I am very happy, I could not wait and it was a tough game, and maybe Benfica deserved more, but maybe the individual quality made the difference."

Torres admitted that Chelsea were second best in the opening half.

He said: "The first half was not good enough at all - and we had to change our mentality to win a final and you could see a difference in the second half."

The Spaniard was again asked about his future at the club, and reiterated that he sees himself staying at Stamford Bridge.

"I signed for five years and I hope to stay at least for this time."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
