Ultimately I want to play for Chelsea.
Mason Mount
With Lille, we could have gone to the South of France, and people wouldn’t have recognised us. But at Chelsea, the players are at another level. Everything has changed – the language, the country – but it is up to me to adapt.
Eden Hazard
Ever since I was in the Chelsea academy, I’ve had that awareness that people were saying I would be the first one to break through since John Terry. I believed I could, but the opportunities didn’t quite come for me.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
I feel like wellies are a classic Glasto go-to, but in the heat the Chelsea boot style was a good call.
Emma Corrin
The situation with Anders Frisk is clear: he was threatened by the supporters of Chelsea, and he retired because he was in fear. This is serious.
Frank Rijkaard
I was given an incredible gift growing up in the Chelsea, a space where it is completely fine to be yourself – you just had to figure out what that was. You didn’t have to figure that out in the face of opposition at every turn.
Gaby Hoffmann
I admire Arsenal and the philosophy that the young players have. Liverpool, with their Spanish players, they also have an incredible squad. And Manchester United and Chelsea are teams that are very big, like Real Madrid and Barcelona, with money and incredible players.
Juan Mata
He could give very motivating team talks, but did not do that so often. Instead, Mourinho implemented a new system at Chelsea: he nominated players for team talks. That’s a great idea in my opinion.

It’s hard to pick out a single team, because there are so many big games here in the Premier League, obviously there are the top teams like Liverpool, City, Chelsea, I think those big games, the ‘big six’ are always good. We always look forward to them, we all want to be on the pitch and to win them.

Emma Hayes
In a team like Chelsea with many top players you have to prove yourself again and again.
Andre Schurrle
I looked at it, and it was like, ‘Can I push and make the Olympic squad?’ It is tough going from 18 players, including Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. I thought that might be a push too far for me. I had no Champions League with Chelsea. I lost my motivation.
Karen Carney
People say that Chelsea are undergoing a revolution. Well, that suits me fine, because I am a true revolutionary.

Eden Hazard
I played in an FA Cup final for Aston Villa and the manager went negative, sitting everyone behind the ball against Chelsea.
Paul Merson
It’s tough being at Chelsea. I work hard every day in training. It’s a massive club with really good players, so you don’t get the opportunity every weekend.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
I never had problems with injuries as a kid or in the youth team. My injuries started at Chelsea, when I broke my foot during a pre-season game. That was just pure bad luck, but after that, I had some muscular injuries, too, so I had to get to know my body better.
Arjen Robben
Because of how I grew up and on ‘Made In Chelsea,’ I never had any challenge.

N’Golo Kante
I spent too little time at Chelsea. I want to have another life so I could spend more time there.
Hernan Crespo
I want to thank my two English clubs: Liverpool for bri

Carlo Ancelotti
Chelsea have given me the opportunity to play in a top team with top players, so I will try to be as successful as possible here.

Chanel West Coast
Manchester City are a big team, and Chelsea are a big team.

Didier is a Chelsea legend and a senior player. I am happy for him to take the 11 and for me to take the 8.

Petr Cech
Chelsea is one of the most important clubs in the most important championship in Europe.

I had a fantastic career at Chelsea. I was here for almost nine years, and it was great. I have nothing negative to say at all. It was all positive.
Michael Essien
Chelsea is a very demanding club. They need to be in the Champions League and they need to win trophies because that is what the club has been doing for some time.
Gianfranco Zola
It is very tough in England. Every away game is hard, of course. And normally, if you’re a big club like Chelsea, you’re supposed to win games at home against smaller clubs. But in England, that’s not the case. We must play well every game.
Thibaut Courtois
I thought ‘Chelsea Girls’ was going to change my life.

My first trophy in France was the Young Player of the Year. I was 17. Chelsea is not just one player. It is not only me. We have signed a lot of players. Now we have some good signings like Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa.
Eden Hazard
I’m not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter or Real Madrid. It wouldn’t be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time. Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn’t be a problem.
Sam Allardyce
After playing for several European clubs including Chelsea I opted to come to Shanghai. I wanted to see new things here, to get to know the Chinese people.

I know from Chelsea that it’s not about one or two brilliant performances. It is also about winning different types of matches.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
You look at situations like Thibaut Courtois and Petr Cech at Chelsea, two of the best goalkeepers in the world at the same club, one of them’s going to be unhappy.
Kasper Schmeichel
We want to challenge ourselves against the top teams in the world and are happy to be competing on so many fronts. And, personally, it’s great for me to work with the quality of player we have here at Chelsea.
Roberto Di Matteo
Chelsea’s fans love me a lot, even more than in Atletico. Figure that!

It is a privilege to be part of this Chelsea squad and the Chelsea family, at one of the most historic clubs in the Premier League.

N’Golo Kante
Drogba. I used to grow up watching football and when I saw him that was it. I’ve got his jersey in my closet. That dude is a legend for what he achieved at Chelsea.
John Collins
I’ve been to the White House and had Hilary Clinton push through the crowd to come and meet me. Chelsea Clinton, too.
Lesley Nicol
I was released by Chelsea at 14 years old. I remember it, a Tuesday night. On the Wednesday, I was training with Fulham, five minutes from my house, and then on the Thursday, I was training with West Ham. After one session at both clubs, they both wanted me.
Declan Rice
There is no reason not to be happy at Chelsea.
Thibaut Courtois
I wanted to finish at the top of the game and on my own terms. I thought it was the perfect time at the World Cup and to go out at Chelsea. Chelsea and England were immense in how they have supported me in that transition.
Karen Carney

Joe Calzaghe
Chelsea is a great team with some amazing players.
Edin Dzeko
I turned down a lot of money by not going to Chelsea, but that’s not what I’m interested in.
Edin Dzeko
Everyone could always see Frank Lampard would become a head coach. The way he was as a player, always trying to help people and on everyone’s case. I’m very happy for Chelsea.
Nathan Ake
I go back to when we were at Chelsea. Every game I went into, nobody ever thought we were going to lose a game. Everybody thought we were all going to win.

Demba Ba
My dad was an Arsenal supporter and he used to take me there, but I’ve always been Chelsea.
Eric Bristow
Manchester United and Liverpool have been bought with huge leverage, and we’ve got Roman Abramovich at Chelsea who can turn his loans into shares. It is really important for the Premier League to ask itself: if a club is being bought on such a mountain of debt, isn’t that a possible recipe for disaster for the future?
Gordon Taylor
Finishing in the top four for Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United was easier before, but now it’s getting much more difficult with the emergence of teams like Manchester City.
Sam Allardyce
I don’t know how long I will be coaching for but I don’t expect I will go on from Chelsea, Chelsea is my absolute home.
Emma Hayes
Most of our players come from the Championship; Chelsea can get more or less anyone from around the world. Some clubs in this division have owners who say it doesn’t matter what they spend. I don’t know what happened to Financial Fair Play but it didn’t exactly level the playing field.
Sean Dyche
London is a wonderful city, but I am here for Chelsea. It’s 100 per cent hard work, 90 per cent fun.
Maurizio Sarri
At Chelsea I knew I’d improve a lot quicker around better players, world-class players.
Ross Barkley
As soon as I knew I was leaving Chelsea, our first thought was to return to Germany.

My respect for Chelsea will be forever.
David Luiz
The FA Cup is something we want to win, but when you play for Chelsea, it is not something you think about a lot because you want to win every game.
Eden Hazard
I think Chelsea is Chelsea. No matter the players we have, we have to fight until the end in every competition.
Willian
Thinking back to how it fell apart for Mourinho at Chelsea, I do have some sympathy for him. At most clubs it is the manager who determines the long-term stability of the players but at Chelsea it seems very much the other way round.
Eniola Aluko
I am genuinely flattered by Chelsea’s interest. It’s a club I really respect, and hold in great esteem.
Edin Dzeko

I have said in the past that I would be happy to see ou

Michael Ballack
Thank you to all of the fans and everybody connected with Norwich City, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, and Chelsea.
Robert Green
Nick Kroll, A.D. Miles, Chelsea Peretti – those were the people I was always doing open mics with.
John Mulaney
I always like to remember the year 2008, when we had an amazing offer from Chelsea for Franck Ribery. From that day on, the whole world of football knew nobody can buy a Bayern Munich player against the will of Bayern Munich.
Jupp Heynckes
If money weren’t cool, pseudo-socialists like Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler would tell jokes for free in soup kitchens.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
When Chelsea let me go, it was really deflating. For me, as a youngster, it’s all I ever knew – living 10 minutes from the training ground, going to loads of the games.
Declan Rice
I don’t know where horse riding could have taken me, and it’s something I can always go back to when I’ve retired from football, but the crossroads came in my life when Chelsea wanted to sign me and make me a professional footballer in 2013 when I was 20.
Millie Bright
Honestly, the All In women’s locker room was such an inspirational group of women. What I love about all the women involved – Chelsea, Britt, Madison, Jordynne Grace, Brandi Rhodes, Tenille Dashwood, Penelope Ford, Mandy Leon – is we all bring something so different to the table for a common vision.
Tessa Blanchard
It is my club, I am a Chelsea player.
N’Golo Kante
I moved to New York on October 21, 2004, and it was the day that the Chelsea Grill, a restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen on 9th Avenue between 46th and 47th Street, opened. I had never waited a table in my life, but I walked in and lied to the manager in a very J. Pierrepont Finch way.
Jonathan Groff
I have been a Chelsea fan ever since I was a kid and I felt well there right until the last day.
Andre Schurrle
It’s not so easy for us when we play teams who have a different mindset, like Chelsea or Inter Milan, because they have the intention of trying to stop us rather than playing a game that is more attractive for the spectators to enjoy.
Lionel Messi
I hope I can help Chelsea win many trophies during my time at Stamford Bridge.
Michy Batshuayi
The whole London football scene is now financially more powerful and ambitious than ever before. That reflects the city’s economic might and its multiculturalism. Now West Ham have a new , and Spurs and Chelsea will follow. And the London clubs have widened their areas of support.
John Motson
The transfer was good for me, good for Chelsea, good for Shanghai, and I’m so happy to come to the Chinese Super League.
Oscar
I spoke with Abramovich. He is very simple and loves football. We were on the same wavelength: he wants to confirm Chelsea’s position at the top.
Eden Hazard
My goal is to stay here at Chelsea. Unless Chelsea does not want me anymore – then I’d have to find another club!
Willian
During my time playing for England we had Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes. They were world-class players playing for Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool, Arsenal, all legends of the game.
Jermaine Jenas
In England I feel very well known, not only by Chelsea’s fans, but also by other teams.
Marcos Alonso
I went from Chelsea to Fulham – two Premier League teams at the time – and was sitting on the bench for the Europa League and Premier League and you don’t think it is going to finish.
Neil Etheridge
My first season in English football was very special. I hope to go on to achieve even more as a Chelsea player.
N’Golo Kante
I’ve always been clear – I feel good at Chelsea. Every week, I repeat the same on PSG. It’s a big team but an inferior league. I don’t want to return to France, because I’ve won everything over there – the league title, cup, best player, best young player.
Eden Hazard
I look back at Drogba’s start at Chelsea and he didn’t hit the ground running and he got there in the end, so I think Werner will get there.
Wayne Bridge
Frank was an example throughout my career at Chelsea, and throughout my career as a midfielder. When it comes to scoring goals as a midfielder, you look at Frank Lampard as a role model.
Mason Mount
Chelsea and Arsenal tried to sign me when I was 13, 14.
Romelu Lukaku
I think it is always difficult for every manager, when you arrive with good motivation and ambition. It’s not just in the Chelsea dressing-room. For all coaches, it’s difficult.
Pedro
I wanted to live in the suburbs and have a white picket fence and my own bedroom. And a staircase – I thought having a staircase meant that you were a normal family. I thought somehow if you could transplant us to the suburbs, we would become a normal family. But in retrospect, I’m so grateful I grew up in the Chelsea.
Gaby Hoffmann
Chelsea Handler is a good friend of mine, and I always was inspired by the fact that she was taking her life and turning it into these ridiculous, raunchy memoirs. She really has a talent, and she’s a great writer. I was inspired by her trajectory.
Jenny Mollen
Before I got married, I never really watched TV. Now, my husband and I watch ‘The Bachelor’ together. I love ‘The Soup’ – that’s where I get a lot of my pop culture – and ‘Chelsea Lately.’
Dylan Lauren
I came from Charlton, and no disrespect to them, but I was there from the age of nine and going to Chelsea when I was 21 or 22, I had never experienced or seen world-class players or people in that sense.
Scott Parker
If I go to Chelsea it will be a dream come true.
Oscar
I've so much respect for Chelsea, and I love them.

I’ve so much respect for Chelsea, and I love them.
Michy Batshuayi
I was released by Chelsea at 14 years old. I remember it, a Tuesday night. On the Wednesday, I was training with Fulham, five minutes from my house, and then on the Thursday, I was training with West Ham. After one session at both clubs, they both wanted me.
Declan Rice
Chelsea gave me all the trophies I have as a football player. I saw my kids growing up in London.
Fernando Torres
I’m very happy here at Chelsea.
Willian
I’d rather sell groundnuts in my village than to play for a pathetic team like Chelsea.
Samuel Eto’o
I remember when I was at Chelsea, and Ancellotti used to say, ‘Watch a DVD of Inzaghi’ – movement in terms of runs in behind and what makes strikers score goals.
Daniel Sturridge
I had a good time at Chelsea and was accepted in the team, so it’s difficult to explain why I left. My performances were good as well, but there was a time in my second season when I felt I didn’t have the manager’s trust any more and I didn’t play many matches from the start.
Andre Schurrle
Jean Shrimpton was the most beautiful of all the models I have known. To walk down the King’s Road, Chelsea, with Shrimpton was like walking through the rye. Strong men just keeled over right and left as she strode up the street.
Mary Quant
I am very good friends with Oscar and David Luiz, and Ramires at Chelsea is another one I see.
Paulinho
At Chelsea, there’s more focus on team shape, a lot of work on tactics.
Daniel Sturridge
I had to take a risk in quitting two jobs I was working at the same time while playing semi-pro up at Doncaster. I had to stop those two jobs and move down to London, away from my family, when the opportunity with Chelsea came my way.
Millie Bright
I like people like Robert De Niro and Anthony Hopkins. And Gianfranco Zola, who played for Chelsea and Italy. He’s an artist with his feet.
Phil Daniels
The likes of Frank Lampard and John Terry at Chelsea, English players with proper status at a club, they’re going to be like the dodo bird. Extinct.
Vinnie Jones
Chelsea belongs in the Champions League, and we must stay there.
Antonio Conte
My dream was to play for Chelsea – maybe I was bit naive.
Patrick Bamford
I have friends who play for Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
Alexandre Pato
When I first started out wrestling in front of 100 people, I thought, ‘Chelsea, you’re better than this. You should be working in front of thousands!’ But I was crazy.
Laurel Van Ness
Being a young kid from the hood in Paris, growing up in poverty and then scoring the goal that took Chelsea to the Champions League semi-finals, that felt like a great achievement.
Demba Ba
I went to Chelsea twice when I was 14 and 15. I was at Danish club Odense at the time and came across with a friend to Cobham. We played against West Ham youth away, and the year after, we played Millwall away.
Christian Eriksen
Chelsea is always hard to break into, but I believe in myself, and if I work hard, then hopefully things will go well.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
I’m a Juventus fan, although I did support Chelsea for some time – mainly because of Gianfranco Zola. Zola is from the same town as my father Enzo, in Sardinia.
Joe Calzaghe
I left for Chelsea to learn new things, at a new club with new players.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
When I was at Chelsea I was playing for a team where Ashley Cole was the best in the world and I still got games.
Wayne Bridge
I love ‘Made In Chelsea,’ and I think it’s a great show.
Amy Childs
Chelsea is in my heart and I was so proud to achieve so much for the club.
Gianfranco Zola
When I arrived at Chelsea, I had got used to playing 50 games, and suddenly, I was sharing my position with another player.
Filipe Luis
Show me a team of the stature of Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid, or Barcelona who is not obsessed with winning the Champions League. If they are not, I’d be surprised why they play in it.
Petr Cech
I kept an eye on Chelsea’s fortunes after they first tried to sign me.
Willian
We all want to make a step higher up. I think I’ve got it in me to play at that level. I played a few games at Chelsea and showed it. That’s just having confidence in yourself.
Patrick van Aanholt
When I was at Doncaster Rovers Belles, I used to play up front or as a number 10, but when I joined Chelsea in 2015, I was more a midfielder, and over the last few years, I’ve moved into the back four.
Millie Bright
With Chelsea… I play in blue every weekend and that’s more than enough for me.
Nicolas Anelka
I want to get to a level where I am regarded as one of

I want to get to a level where I am regarded as one of the best and coming to a club like Chelsea gives me the right platform to improve.
Ross Barkley
I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool – these are the teams that are always there fighting.
Neymar
I’d first come to Chelsea from Kosice and, for me, that was a dream. It’s not easy making that move. I was maybe the first player to come from Slovakia to a club like Chelsea, who normally buy players from Holland, Spain, Italy, Portugal.
Nemanja Matic
I am thrilled to be joining United. I have enjoyed some very happy years at Chelsea, but the time has come for a new challenge.
Juan Mata
Against Chelsea, you will have periods in the game when you are right up against it, when they keep the ball. They are pretty solid the way they set their team up.
Gareth Barry
I have good memories and bad memories of games against Chelsea. All the goals are good memories because all of them are special.
Fernando Torres
I really appreciate having renewed for another year with Chelsea at 38.
Willy Caballero
I spoke with Abramovich. He is very simple and loves football. We were on the same wavelength: he wants to confirm Chelsea’s position at the top.
Eden Hazard
When you play against a team such as Arsenal, Manchester United or Chelsea, you never know what will happen. But the key to the season is to win the games that you expect to win.
Kolo Toure
The main reason to come to England and Chelsea was to play with a great team. Money and the chance to live in a city like London are additional factors.
Michael Ballack
Obviously I have to respect Chelsea, who made a huge effort to sign me, and I’m very happy here. But Madrid will always be Madrid for me.
Alvaro Morata
I have never said I wanted to leave Chelsea.
Nicolas Anelka
From my early years at Bolton I knew that Chelsea were a great club and the truth is that I was right to come here.
Marcos Alonso
I love Chelsea and I want to stay here for a long time.
Oscar
I have always known that I’ve got the ability to play in a big club like Chelsea.
Victor Moses
It was amazing to have Mourinho call me, even though I’d been warned before how he would appeal to me. I listened to his arguments about why I should move to United. But at that time I was hesitant between staying at Leicester or leaving for Chelsea.
N’Golo Kante
For me, that was a defining moment in my career, being at Chelsea, going through what has made me become a man in terms of my career. Even playing on the right wing helped my right foot, making me use it more, making me improve.
Daniel Sturridge
Why did I choose Arsenal rather than Chelsea? Because it is a club I love, and I thought it would be easier for my adaptation.
Olivier Giroud
It’s not so easy to go to a club like Chelsea as a young guy.
Mousa Dembele
We’ve actually got a Chelsea loan WhatsApp group. The loan department set it up. Sometimes it drains your battery when everyone is messaging each other.
Patrick Bamford
I want to say thanks to the Chelsea fans because I have seen them very, very happy with me for joining Chelsea.
Fernando Torres
It’s all I’ve dreamt winning a trophy with Chelsea. To go all the way in the Champions League.
Mason Mount
We were under pressure at West Brom to get promoted and to stay up, even if, at a big club like Chelsea, the pressures are more highlighted by the public scrutiny you’re under. It’s part of our job, that pressure, and I cope with it well.
Roberto Di Matteo
Chelsea is a massive club, you aim to win the Premier League or are challenging for trophies with the aim to win everything.
Ross Barkley
It was so nice to see that the Chelsea supporters appreciated my talent and my work at Atletico.
Thibaut Courtois
My favourite game has to be winning the Champions League against Chelsea in 2008, because nothing can top that. My favourite goal was at Wigan in 2009, which came late in the game and pretty much clinched the title for us that year.
Michael Carrick
When my agent told me that Chelsea were interested it was not something I even needed to think about.
Oscar
At a club like Chelsea, they have the money to buy world class strikers like Diego Costa, and there’s also that pressure to win trophies. I just have to stick with it, be patient, and hopefully my rewards will come.
Patrick Bamford
I’ve never been unfaithful outside ‘Made In Chelsea.’ I don’t care what the reputation looks like. I was unfaithful on that television show because it’s a show about that. I’m not saying it was acceptable behavior, but the show wouldn’t work without relationships failing. In real life it’s completely different.
Spencer Matthews
I like Chelsea, Milan and Inter. I have always followed the two Italian teams because my role models when I was young were Ronaldinho and Ronaldo, and they played for those teams.
Willian
Chelsea is my favourite team. I have always said it, and I have never hidden it.
Romelu Lukaku
When you are a player, a footballer, or a manager of a

When you are a player, a footballer, or a manager of a great club like Chelsea, you must play to win. To win. To win the title. Or to fight and, at the end, to compete with the other teams to win the title and reach your targets.
Antonio Conte
I would love to retire a City player and I have my fingers crossed it is something that can still happen. When I did leave in 2005, I broke down crying on the way to sign for Chelsea, but back then, we needed the money my sale brought in.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
I can’t be the same as another player. I am just my way and I will try to improve on that at Chelsea.
N’Golo Kante
The whole London football scene is now financially more powerful and ambitious than ever before. That reflects the city’s economic might and its multiculturalism. Now West Ham have a new , and Spurs and Chelsea will follow. And the London clubs have widened their areas of support.
John Motson
When I was 11, I was invited to be a ballboy at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea played Liverpool. I was a Liverpool fan, so I was gutted that they lost 2-0. Afterwards, I was introduced to the players – I found it terrifying.
Theo Walcott
I want to win more games, more trophies, because I love Chelsea, I love the fans. I like the city, my family like it here.
Oscar
The Hull job had been offered to me and while watching Chelsea against Bayern Munich I was thinking: ‘I’m going to give it a crack.’ I’d rather be managing than commentating.
Steve Bruce
On ‘Made In Chelsea’ there are cameras in my face and some days I think, ‘I can’t go to filming today,’ but I just have to dry my tears and pull myself together.
Georgia Toffolo
I’m really happy with my choice to be here at Chelsea.
Jorginho
When you have a son in football like Anton, it will always be deemed as if he got the prop up and given the contract, no matter how hard he works. So much so that when he was offered a deal at Chelsea, I advised him not to take a professional contract.
Brendan Rodgers
I’m joining Chelsea hopefully to win more titles.
Oscar
To be captain of such a huge club like Chelsea is a great personal achievement.
Gary Cahill
I’ve always been following Chelsea and every time I came to London I would try to see a Chelsea game and see how the team was doing because it’s been my dream to come to play here.
Willian
I can imagine finishing my career at Chelsea.
Michael Ballack
My team-mates at Chelsea have told me about the ‘Kante-facts.’ It is just a bit of fun. I obviously do not cover 30 per cent of the surface of the earth.
N’Golo Kante
City is a very family-oriented club. Chelsea is in the centre of London, there is a different crowd following them, maybe more business people go to watch them.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
People want to see you on the pitch. That was why I left Chelsea. I didn’t want to hear people saying, ‘Hey, he’s doing well in training, blah blah blah… ‘ The game is what counts.
Romelu Lukaku
The Ranelagh Gardens in Chelsea provide plenty of opportunities to walk, think and relax.
Richard Rogers
I have been able to fulfil nearly all my ambitions at Chelsea. I have won the Champions League, the League, I have won FA Cups here, but you don’t want to stop winning trophies, and being at a big club, you are always fighting to win a trophy.
Ashley Cole
Every season with Chelsea, we have to fight for every competition and every game and we will go for it.
Marcos Alonso
I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool – these are the teams that are always there fighting.
Neymar
I have got to a level where I feel I needed to make the jump to Chelsea and push myself and get myself to a better level and playing with world-class players here is only going to help.
Ross Barkley
I didn’t take the Porto job nor the Chelsea job because Jose made the same steps.
Andre Villas-Boas
Marie Antoinette was funny, I’m sure she was just misinterpreted. You know the ‘Let them eat cake’ line. She seems like she was kind of funny, like a Chelsea Handler or Kathy Griffin type.
Colin Quinn
The very best hotel I’ve stayed in is the Intercontinental on Park Lane. We went there for the Chelsea Flower Show a few years ago, and it was sheer luxury. Everybody had a smile on their face. I came home and changed all my pillows because the hotel ones were so beautiful.
Mary Berry
It’s always a pleasure to know clubs like Chelsea, with their ambitious owner, are interested in you.
David Trezeguet
I love UCB Chelsea. There is, to me, no stage like it.
Nicole Byer
I was still with Sunderland at the time of my first cap in 2010, and I remember getting the text to let me know that I was going to be called up to the squad – it was a Friday night, and I was in a hotel in London because we were playing Chelsea the next day.
Jordan Henderson
When you play for a team like Chelsea you will have to fight for your place.
Nicolas Anelka
The Premier League is different. Sometimes the Bournemouth game can be more difficult than Liverpool or Chelsea.
Ronald Koeman
Courtois was rated highly enough by Chelsea to go back and replace Petr Cech, one of the best goalkeepers of modern times. He has lived up to his reputation.
Diego Forlan
Would I love to go and get out of here and have a coupl

Would I love to go and get out of here and have a couple of months preparing, I don’t know, anywhere in sunshine? Yes. But I think while I’m under employment with Chelsea, I think to talk about another job, even if it was short-term, and I haven’t been asked, I think it is so disrespectful.
Emma Hayes
When I was little, my dream was to come and play in the Premier League. So when Chelsea came in, I said yes straight away.
Michael Essien
Didier talks to all of us. Not just with me, but with all the attacking players. He has scored so many goals for Chelsea. But now he pushes the younger players. He is fantastic. A fantastic player, and a fantastic person.
Oscar
I love heels, and as a size 36, I’ve accumulated a wall of amazing high heels from catwalk shows over the years where designers had to make especially small shoes. Tom Ford’s golden versions are my favourite. I do, however, also live in my flat Saint Laurent Chelsea boots or Givenchy sneakers.
Liberty Ross
When I first came to England I hated football and knew nothing about it. Watching 0-0s and 1-0s having come from Aussie Rules was just dull. The only player I had heard of was David Beckham. But when I was living in Leicester I started watching Match of the Day and really got into Chelsea.
Neil Robertson
Chelsea and Shakhtar are two great teams.
Fabio Quagliarella
When you beat a team so often – especially like this season when Chelsea had already lost three times to us – you know people expect you to do it again. But you also know they’re going to be even more motivated to finally win.
Dennis Bergkamp
Of course I support Chelsea.
Oscar
Everybody knows Man City and Chelsea is always a fiercely competitive game.
Emma Hayes
I married a pretty famous girl, and when we drive through town there’s usually a car following us, when I walk out of my front door in Chelsea there’s six guys waiting for me.
Kevin Pietersen
When I made up my mind for Manchester, I felt I had betrayed Hiddink. I knew he wanted me to go to Chelsea, so I found it difficult.
Park Ji-sung
When Chelsea came to me and said they wanted me to come back, I was happy because I had a special moment here – one of the best in my career. I won the Champions League, the Europa League.
David Luiz
I am delighted to be joining a big English club. I know very well the quality that Chelsea has.
David Luiz
Chelsea feels like a big family.
Michy Batshuayi
I am very proud to stay and be a Chelsea player. It is an honour to play at this club.
Willian
I’ve had an incredible reception at Chelsea. John Terry is an exemplary captain, who has treated me very well since I arrived.
Pedro
There are some people who have left me negative messages, but they aren’t true Chelsea fans.
Petr Cech
It was amazing to have Mourinho call me, even though I’d been warned before how he would appeal to me. I listened to his arguments about why I should move to United. But at that time I was hesitant between staying at Leicester or leaving for Chelsea.
N’Golo Kante
When I go on loan, I don’t really think about Chelsea. I just concentrate on the team I’m at and try to help them, same as when I was at MK Dons, Derby, and Middlesbrough.
Patrick Bamford
The day I signed up to ‘Made In Chelsea’ at 19, I gave my life over. I think about that often. I was on the show for about four years.
Georgia Toffolo
Chelsea is the main goal for me, I want to play in their first-team.
Mason Mount
Chelsea are one of the great teams in Europe and Mourinho is one of the best coaches in the world.
Douglas Costa
As a child, I always wanted to come to the Premier League, so when I made the move, I was very happy. Chelsea were on the up – they were doing really good – so I was very excited, and in the end, everything went well here for me.
Michael Essien
Appropriation is the idea that ate the art world. Go to any Chelsea gallery or international biennial and you’ll find it. It’s there in paintings of photographs, photographs of advertising, sculpture with ready-made objects, videos using already-existing film.
Jerry Saltz
I knew that Chelsea was a club that changed its manager reasonably often.
Eden Hazard
You don’t want to be the boy leaving Chelsea, you want to train like every session is your last session because you know you always have to prove something to people.
Mason Mount
Chelsea always want to win trophies.
Willian
I have always liked Chelsea a lot. I watch a lot of the Premier League, and it is a club where you can feel the warmth of the fans.
Filipe Luis
I’ve come out of myself as a person at Chelsea and expressed myself on and off the pitch.
Fran Kirby
I have become more versatile after the Chelsea experience.
Andre Villas-Boas
My dad was an Arsenal supporter and he used to take me there, but I’ve always been Chelsea.
Eric Bristow
My real, full name is Chelsea Chanel Dudley. In my opin

My real, full name is Chelsea Chanel Dudley. In my opinion, Chelsea Dudley does not sound like a rapper. So I was like, ‘You know what? Imma drop both of those names and just go by Chanel.’
Chanel West Coast
Me and my dad sat down in May and we spoke and thought the next step would be for me to push into a Premier League team and we felt the better route for me was to leave Chelsea.
Tino Livramento
I turned down a lot of money by not going to Chelsea, but that’s not what I’m interested in.
Edin Dzeko
I came to Chelsea because one club and one coach believed in me.
Alvaro Morata
I saw ‘Brokeback Mountain’ in a packed house in Chelsea, New York, when I was filming a Bollywood film there. Chelsea, being a predominately gay neighbourhood, had the most euphoric reaction. I saw couples holding hands and crying at the end. It was the most heartening viewing I have ever been to.
Karan Johar
I’ll always be proud to say I played at Chelsea, at Valencia, in the youth system at Real Madrid, in the youth system at Real Oviedo, and for United.
Juan Mata
Playing for Chelsea doesn’t compare to the pressure of playing for Brazil because we’ve won the World Cup five times. It’s not only a massive country but football is part of the culture. They always want you to win, so you can never have an off-day.
Oscar
I love being a regular on ‘Chelsea Lately!’
Loni Love
I would never regret joining a club like Chelsea, and hopefully I will be a long time at Chelsea.
Alvaro Morata
My dad really liked Didier Drogba and there was always a Chelsea game on when I was growing up.
Alphonso Davies
I like to believe Chelsea is where I will go through and do well. I have been there since I was six years old. My dream is to break into the first team.
Tammy Abraham
I’ve always liked Liverpool. I’d play a lot of video games, and I’d be them, because they played in red, like Independiente, my first club, Arsenal, or Chelsea.
Sergio Aguero
I always said I was very grateful for Chelsea. I spent an amazing time of my career there, we won a lot of trophies, and I think I became a better player. I have great friends in the club, and I always wish the best for them.
Juan Mata
Whatever happens happens, but learning from the players at Chelsea is a great experience.
Tammy Abraham
Jean Shrimpton was the most beautiful of all the models I have known. To walk down the King’s Road, Chelsea, with Shrimpton was like walking through the rye. Strong men just keeled over right and left as she strode up the street.
Mary Quant
My dream is Chelsea. They are great, and my objective is to play there.
Robinho
I’ll never have a bad word to say about how Chelsea treated me growing up and developing me into the player I am today. It’s probably the best academy in the world that anyone would want to go to and develop.
Tino Livramento
I spent too little time at Chelsea. I want to have another life so I could spend more time there.
Hernan Crespo
I first started going to Chelsea games in the mid-Nineties when I lived off the North End Road, ten minutes’ walk from Stamford Bridge.
George Osborne
I am really happy here and have no regrets about the decision I made to join Chelsea.
Pedro
I learned a lot at Chelsea partly down to the players I played alongside.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
I’m happy for the move to Chelsea from Newcastle and I did what I had to do with the time I was given.
Demba Ba
In my head, if I don’t get a shot at Chelsea, personally, I think I will have failed.
Patrick Bamford
People think I got loads of money at City and then left for Chelsea to chase more money. I didn’t get that money. I moved to Chelsea because they made promises to me. They told me I would get opportunities, I would play and that they believed in me as a young player.
Daniel Sturridge
The biggest clubs in Europe, whether they be Barcelona, Madrid, Manchester United, or Chelsea, always want to win, whatever they are participating in.
Michael Laudrup
I really want to play in Chelsea.
Alexandre Pato
I’m happy to stay at Chelsea as long as they’re happy to have me.
Fran Kirby
I love Chelsea Handler.
Lauren Conrad
Chelsea have fantastic players.
Kyle Walker
I still wish Chelsea and all the players every success. I spent so many years connected to the club. One incident is not going to change that.
Roberto Di Matteo
I don’t know how I can explain that moment. But it was the best moment I think in my life when I signed with Chelsea because it was my dream to come here.
Willian
The Premier League is a very strong league. Chelsea, Ma

The Premier League is a very strong league. Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool all have a high quality. But those who know me also know that I always want to win titles. And I think that Manchester United are a club which can win titles.
Bastian Schweinsteiger
Look, I know my Chelsea move hasn’t worked out how anybody would have wanted and I’ve made mistakes, but it’s not as simple as me just not playing football or picking up a wage.
Danny Drinkwater
Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here.
Willian
When I first came to Chelsea, I couldn’t kick the ball, and it was pointless, me playing, really. But I tried to play through the pain for the manager who bought me.
Ashley Cole
I think I had a positive development at Chelsea. I was very young when I arrived, only 20, and the problem I had was injuries.
Arjen Robben
I have helped Barcelona win titles and I want to do exactly the same thing at Chelsea, because ultimately we are all here to win things.
Pedro
I could never call myself a Chelsea fan. I’m a St Mirren supporter. But after about 35 years of watching St Mirren, I think I’m entitled to go and see what else there is.
Douglas Henshall
I really enjoyed coaching Chelsea. It was a different atmosphere with less money and a more familiar environment.
Gianluca Vialli
We don’t have the money of the Manchester clubs or Chelsea. Arsenal builds its team through training, through recruiting players who can become something. Arsenal has less money than some other clubs, so we have to fight with other values.
Olivier Giroud
Neymar could have earned just as much from Manchester City or Chelsea.
Marco Verratti
Chelsea are a big club – we have to win titles and to qualify for the Champions League. There’s a lot to do, but we’ll try to do it all.
Eden Hazard
I enjoyed playing against Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool but the north London derby was totally different. I have so many great memories from this fixture.
Robert Pires
I’ve been to Wembley a couple of times to see England, but the match which stands out for me is the 2008 Carling Cup final against Chelsea. I was there as a fan with the family. That was a great day out.
Harry Kane
It’s hard to compare the faith of Gareth Southgate and Roy Hodgson and my lack of chances at Chelsea because it’s such a big club.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
But I think I made the right move to leave Chelsea behind. They kept sending me on loan to get more experience.
Patrick van Aanholt
I have been at Chelsea for a lot of years. I have played in the Premier League, the Champions League, it is a kid’s dream to play for Chelsea. I have moved on, who knows I might one day go back to Chelsea.
Patrick van Aanholt
I trained with Chelsea for two weeks under Glenn Hoddle when they were in the relegation zone – it was a long time ago. And I also trained for Bolton when I was a young player. I was very clear, very soon, that I was missing a lot for that level.
Ralph Hasenhuttl
When I first came to Chelsea, I realised there is an expectation on everybody here and history proved that this club wins trophies. I wanted to be a part of that. Thankfully, I’ve worked hard, got in the team and I’ve played my part.
Gary Cahill
I don’t have any reason not to be at Chelsea. It is my dream to put on that blue shirt and play for them eventually.
Patrick Bamford
People expect a lot from the number nine at Chelsea. They expect a lot of goals and good performances.
Gianfranco Zola
I’ve always said I wanted to play in England. There was a struggle between Chelsea and United, but according to me, Chelsea has the best project.
Eden Hazard
I arrived at the age of 19, 20 and remained five years at Chelsea.
Oscar
I think old people like Hillary Clinton and I shouldn’t try and be cool with social networks, you know; maybe she should leave that stuff up to Chelsea.
Stanley Druckenmiller
Going into Chelsea when I was around seven for the trial, there were loads of boys there.
Tino Livramento
When I was playing for Chelsea and Arsenal, we had a young team but also experienced players. You still have space for the youngsters to play, they just have to be strong mentally to compete every week.
Nicolas Anelka
For the strikers, we have more freedom, and even when we lose the ball, if we press together, we can get it back, and it is good system for Chelsea.
Eden Hazard
When I moved to Chelsea, it was a big, big challenge and experience for me at the time to play with so many good players.
Michael Ballack
I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support.
Nemanja Matic
When Jose Mourinho went to Real Madrid many moons ago, he no question was the man, but he turned them into a defensive side. He went to Chelsea, won the league and all of a sudden he’s on the up again. The following year, complete and utter dismay and then he turned Manchester United into a side that finished sixth.
Steve Nicol
If you play for a team like Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, or PSG, the aim is always to win the Champions League.
Thibaut Courtois
I am certain Chelsea are world leaders at a team level at what we do. For us it is part of our fabric. It is one of the many tenants that we factor into what helps towards our players becoming successful athletes and a successful team.
Emma Hayes
Money plays an important role in football, but it is no

Money plays an important role in football, but it is not the dominating factor. When Chelsea play a Carling Cup game in a small city, and it could result in a draw – the excitement, the spirit, the atmosphere – that’s the real beauty of football in England.
Roman Abramovich
From the first day I left Chelsea, it was always in my mind to make them wrong. I made them wrong.
Mohamed Salah
I’ve always said I wanted to play in England. There was a struggle between Chelsea and United, but according to me, Chelsea has the best project.
Eden Hazard
When I made up my mind for Manchester, I felt I had betrayed Hiddink. I knew he wanted me to go to Chelsea, so I found it difficult.
Park Ji-sung
I always said I was very grateful for Chelsea. I spent an amazing time of my career there, we won a lot of trophies, and I think I became a better player. I have great friends in the club, and I always wish the best for them.
Juan Mata
After Chelsea it was important to choose somewhere I was surrounded with the right people and commitment.
Andre Villas-Boas
I think Chelsea Handler is the funniest woman.
David Alan Grier
Chelsea is where I had the best satisfaction of all, where I was treated the best. This is a special place.
Gianfranco Zola
I know it could be a bit more difficult in England because you are not playing all the time and you play in different positions. But I do expect to score many goals for Chelsea and I hope to keep the average of between 10 to 20 goals a season, that would be good.
Oscar
Of course it is going to be difficult for any player to get in the Chelsea side no matter who they are.
Frank Lampard
With the big clubs embracing women’s football and the professionalism you see at the likes of Liverpool, Birmingham, Arsenal and my club Chelsea, it’s really impressive. We’re making great strides.
Eniola Aluko
The two years out on loan were about trying to get experience and work as hard as I could to make sure when I came back I could give myself the best chance to get back to Chelsea and get in the team. That was my goal.
Mason Mount
I’m here now playing for Chelsea. I chose to leave my home at Athletic Bilbao, and it was an important step in my career.
Kepa Arrizabalaga
The move to Chelsea has made me better and stronger.
Andre Schurrle
I am excited for Chelsea’s future. Our owner is a big fan of women’s football and he’s always asking me what he can do to help.
Emma Hayes
It’s not easy when you lose Flamini, Hleb, Senderos, Gilberto, and Lehmann. When you lose all these players – and Flamini, for me, was the best player last year – it’s really difficult to compete against Chelsea, Man United, or Liverpool.
Patrick Vieira
I’m very happy at Chelsea but I would like to return to Spain one day.
Marcos Alonso
Chelsea is my favourite team. I have always said it, and I have never hidden it.
Romelu Lukaku
I would have loved to play for Liverpool, Manchester United or Chelsea.
Cafu
A lot of people they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never.
Willian
OK, so I never had a transfer in my career, but I used to love deadline day: Dimitar Berbatov turning up at Manchester airport with hours to go, Robinho coming to Manchester City instead of Chelsea.
Paul Scholes
Are Chelsea a hard club to turn down? Yes, of course.
Gary Cahill
Chelsea Morning is a great Joni Mitchell song and I guess I’m partial to her lyrics because they show me a slightly different perspective on life.
Neil Diamond
I spent seven years with Jose and we were part of a very good technical staff. We went to top class clubs at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan and worked with top players who gave us such a tremendous volume of success.
Andre Villas-Boas
I felt Ancelotti did a good job for Chelsea and, like many fans, we are sorry for what happened to him.
Gianfranco Zola
Every title is important for Chelsea.
Oscar
At places like Chelsea, often the garden displays are so big and grand that you’d never be able to have them at home.
Anton du Beke
Chelsea Handler is a good friend of mine, and I always was inspired by the fact that she was taking her life and turning it into these ridiculous, raunchy memoirs. She really has a talent, and she’s a great writer. I was inspired by her trajectory.
Jenny Mollen
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Chelsea Handler, Tilda Swinton, and Sofia Coppola are other clients. They’re all risk takers but never look like they’re in costume.
Maria Cornejo
I like to believe Chelsea is where I will go through and do well. I have been there since I was six years old. My dream is to break into the first team.
Tammy Abraham
Chelsea is an ambitious club and it will always be possible that a coach and the players are competitive at the highest level.
Michael Ballack
I moved to New York on October 21, 2004, and it was the

I moved to New York on October 21, 2004, and it was the day that the Chelsea Grill, a restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen on 9th Avenue between 46th and 47th Street, opened. I had never waited a table in my life, but I walked in and lied to the manager in a very J. Pierrepont Finch way.
Jonathan Groff
Winning and scoring at places like Chelsea is what you grow up dreaming of, so doing so with Bournemouth was a moment to cherish.
Glenn Murray
I have made many memories during my time with Chelsea, which I will take with me into my next challenge.
Maurizio Sarri
When I played for Stuttgart, I met Manchester United and Chelsea. With United, I immediately think of the duels with Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and with Chelsea, it was John Terry. Those players are symbols of their clubs and the success they had at that time.
Philipp Lahm
The Chelsea experience was too much too soon. I wasn’t flexible as a manager at that time. I was communicative, but I wasn’t flexible in my approach.
Andre Villas-Boas
Many great teams have players who have come through the youth system or have been at the club for a long time as their captains. I’m thinking of Steven Gerrard at Liverpool, John Terry at Chelsea, Raul at Real Madrid, as well as Puyol at Barcelona and Gary Neville at Man United.
Philipp Lahm
Can space break? I mean the space of art galleries. Over the past 100 years, art galleries have gone from looking like Beaux Arts salons to simple storefronts to industrial lofts to the gleaming giant white cubes of Chelsea with their shiny concrete floors.
Jerry Saltz
All I can do is assess the value from Manchester United perspective. Whatever Chelsea do, they may have a different criteria, and different financial assets.
David Gill
When I score I go wild. Sometimes I put my arms out wide like the way Didier Drogba celebrates for Chelsea or sometimes I try to slide on the grass if the grass is wet enough.
Eniola Aluko
Conte can’t wait to leave Chelsea. He can’t stand that they sell or buy players without consulting him.
Gianluca Vialli
Chelsea have made a good investment for me, but I did not put any pressure on them.
Eden Hazard
I want to play for Chelsea. I hope I do get that chance, and I think I can compete.
Patrick Bamford
Chelsea know how to win cup finals.
Wayne Bridge
I didn’t want to go to Chelsea, because I wanted to play the Champions League and they were sixth in the league.
Eden Hazard
I love Chelsea still. I’m not frustrated; it was a great experience.
Andre Schurrle
It’s true I wasn’t as important at Chelsea. I never demanded that. What I wanted was to be a champion, because few people get that. I succeeded. But the happiness wasn’t there.
Filipe Luis
Coming to Chelsea was a big challenge for me.
Ross Barkley
I had this dream for a long time and it was a dream to play for Chelsea and not for another club.
Andre Schurrle
If people wonder, yes, Hillary Clinton is my friend. She has been a friend to me and Barack and Malia and Sasha, and Bill and Chelsea have been embracing and supportive from the very day my husband took the oath of office.
Michelle Obama
Carlo Ancelotti is a good coach and a good man. I worked with him for just three months at Parma, before I left for Chelsea, although I had worked with him before with the national team. In my first game for the national team I played with him.
Gianfranco Zola
Chelsea have become a big club and have massive financial resources.
Marco van Basten
The people on programmes like ‘Made in Chelsea’ just want to be celebrities. It’s so depressing. No proper actor has that as a goal. I’m striving for longevity in my career.
Kelly Macdonald
In my period at Chelsea, I was sometimes the one who switched sides because we were playing with two left-footed guys on the wings with myself and Damian Duff.
Arjen Robben
Lampard is a great player, not only for Chelsea, but in world football.
Paulinho
At Chelsea, even though I achieved a lot, they did not have great confidence in me.
Gianluca Vialli
When I was a player, you only left the club if they wanted to get rid of you. That was your team – if you were at West Ham, you didn’t leave until the manager wanted to replace you. You didn’t think about playing for Arsenal or Chelsea.
Harry Redknapp
People recognize me. Most people are really nice. Sometimes people say, ‘Hi, Chelsea.’
Chelsea Clinton
When I played against Chelsea, there was always a big motivation because it was a special game; it was always one of the biggest games of the season. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to join Chelsea: because I want to be part of this kind of team.
Fernando Torres
It was tough mentally at Chelsea, obviously not getting the game time. I had to be really patient and have the mentality to still train right and do all the right things.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Out of all the clubs who were interested, I got the feeling that, deep down, Chelsea showed that they really wanted me. There were lots of reasons I came to Chelsea. They showed a real desire to get me to come here. I didn’t have to think about it too much.
Eden Hazard
I am at Chelsea and I still have aims here, what is said elsewhere is not important.
N’Golo Kante
Chelsea Manning has a platform to serve herself, but ma

Chelsea Manning has a platform to serve herself, but many veterans don’t even get medical treatment when they need it.
Dakota Meyer
