Cahill hopes to cap crazy Chelsea season with Champions League triumph

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill intends to cap what he describes as a “mad and “crazy” season with victory in the Champions League on Saturday, ESPN has reported.

Cahill was signed for Chelsea from Bolton Wanderers in January by Andre-Villas Boas, but two months later Villas-Boas was sacked and replaced by Roberto Di Matteo having failed to win a regular place in the Chelsea XI during his first months at the club. Under Di Matteo Chelsea have played out an epic Champions League semi-final with Barcelona and won the FA Cup, while Cahill has also watched on as his former club were relegated.

The centre-back’s participation in the weekend’s final is not yet guaranteed as he is still struggling with a hamstring injury picked up in the semi-final second-leg against Barcelona, but with David Luiz also a doubt and John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic suspended, Cahill could have to play through the pain barrier.

The England international said: “It’s been a mad season and a fantastic season for me. First to win the FA Cup and now to go into this huge game in my first six months here is really crazy.
