PLENTY of angst in (admittedly Liverpudlian) parts of this corner of the globe at Chelsea lifting the Champions League.
Chelsea thoroughly deserved to become the first London club to win the European Cup, and only the second team – after Liverpool in 1984 – to win a final at their opponents’ ground.
Their football may not have been pretty, it may have been dull and it may have relied more on prevention than invention, but it worked.
Bayern Munich got what they deserved. Nothing. For all the pretty football they played, the team in red spurned far too many chances, missed penalties and crumbled under the weight of playing at home.
Kenny Dalglish was sacked for such failings, despite winning a trophy. Bayern boss Juup Heynckes be warned.
