Chelsea new-boy desperate for ‘special’ winner’s medal

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has revealed his desire to lift the Premier League trophy again but this time it will be deserved, as reported by the Evening Standard.

Matic was part of the Blues squad that last won the title back in 2010; however his lack of games meant he didn’t receive a medal that year.

Then 21 years old, Matic came on as a substitute against Wigan when Chelsea secured the title and that was his final game for the club in that stint.

Jose Mourinho brought the impressive holding midfielder back to Stamford Bridge in January and now Matic wants to lift the Premier League trophy having played a major part in the season.

“I will always remember that Wigan game and how it was an amazing day for the club and all of us to celebrate the title,” Matic said.

“But it would be much more special if I win the league with Chelsea this year because I would have made a bigger contribution. I think it’s normal to feel that way.

“When you play more and are a part of the team, it is more special for you. It feels better than when you don’t give something.

“All the players back then helped me a lot and tried to make me feel part of the celebrations but it’s not quite the same as the position I’m in now.”
