CHELSEA TV EXCLUSIVE: HEAD FOR VICTORY

Posted on: Thu 16 May 2013

Branislav Ivanovic, scorer of the winning goal in Amsterdam, spoke to Chelsea TV shortly after the Europa League trophy was lifted.

In a clip that can be viewed above the defender describes his header going in and speaks about deserving the victory.

The full interview is available now via the channel's online access where there are also post-match interviews with another of the goalscorers, Fernando Torres plus Rafael Benitez, David Luiz, Ashley Cole and Oscar.

Ivanovic was awarded man of the match and speaking after collecting the trophy for that he said:

'It was a great feeling for me. We played all the season very hard and for that we deserved this. It is one of the best moments in my career and the dream of every player to score in a final. All the team, the staff and supporters deserve this cup and we are very happy.

'I missed the Champions League final last season but I said always for me it is firstly about the team. Every player chases the trophy and for this final a couple of guys were injured, and all of us we fight for both trophies.'

Ivanovic insisted the hunger for success at the club will not be diminished.

'Always when you win trophies you want another one and you never stop. In sport you always push forward.'
