The first and only time that Chelsea has ever managed to win the Champions League title was during the 2011-12 season when the Premier League club defeated Bayern Munich in the finals in a penalty session which was played on May 19 of 2012.
This historic accomplishment was made when Chelsea was under the guidance of Roberto Di Matteo and no other manager in the history of the Premier League club has managed to reach this feat.
However, this might be changing in the near future as Antonio Conte wants to help Chelsea in snatching the prestigious title back into the hands of the English club as the Italian manager said:
‘’A great team and a great club like Chelsea has to play in the Champions League every season,It is important for us. The Champions League has to be our house to stay’’
“It’s important to think now about this season and go step by step.We have 12 league games till the end of the season to try to reach a dream for me, for the players and for the club. Then we will prepare for next season but when your name is Chelsea, you must always fight to win the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup, all the competitions.”
In order for Chelsea to have any chance of winning the UEFA Champions League, they will have to compete against some of the top clubs in the world including: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, just to name a few.
These are all clubs that are dominating their respective leagues and it might be difficult for Chelsea to compete against them but the arrival of Antonio Conte has turned Chelsea into a club that finished the 2015-16 Premier League season at the 10th spot after what was a vvery disappointing campaign and has transformed into a squad that has been in absolute control of the top tier English League and they might just have what it takes to compete against the best clubs from around the globe.
