Gary Cahill moved from Bolton to Chelsea in a £ 7 million deal a few years ago. He managed to win the Champions league – the ultimate prize for European clubs – within six months of moving to his new club. He followed that by winning the Europa league last season. Despite the trophy laden spell, the Premier league has been missing for Cahill, and the England national hopes to complete the collection by winning it this year. Cahill also won the FA Cup in 2012. He has managed to form a great partnership with John Terry at the back this season.
Mourinho has largely preferred to use David Luiz the middle of the park rather than at central defence. The error prone Portuguese defender has excelled in this position and it could be his future position at the club. Cahill was not used to winning trophies during his previous clubs like Bolton and Aston Villa. Now that he has become a winner, the 28-year-old says that he wants to continue with the Premier league trophy this season. Chelsea are in with a great shout to win the title, as they are just two points behind the leaders Arsenal.
However, the blues also have to contend with the challenge from Manchester City, who Chelsea manager José Mourinho thinks have the best squad in the division.
“It’s one of the biggest trophies you can win and I’m sure the lads who have won it before would say the same thing. They’re just as hungry as me to do it again. As I’ve never won it, it would be a great achievement in my career and one I’m striving to do. We have confidence whenever we play at home, which we should have, and always manage to get results here,” said Cahill after the 3-1 win over United.
