Chelsea’s greatest ever foreign XI including Makelele, Hazard and Drogba but Kante and Robben both snubbed – The Sun

I FEEL so privileged to have lived through two of Chelsea’s finest ever eras watching them first hand as a fan.

First of all, the 90s revolution, led by Glenn Hoddle. This was the first real time that we started to see some superstar players arrive at Chelsea from overseas, with the likes of Ruud Gullit, Gianluca Vialli and Ginfranco Zola arriving. These were great times.

Then came the following decade – the noughties. Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea and the revolution turned into a world-beating project.

In came even more top talents from around the globe, with class players such as Ricardo Carvalho, Didier Drobga, and Marcel Desailly just to name a few.

So based on my experiences over the Premier League era, I have selected my Chelsea foreigners Xl, as well as a manager.

Manager: Jose Mourinho

Carlo Ancelotti was under consideration as well, but for me there has been no better manager ever at Chelsea than Jose Mourinho in his prime.

He bought instant success and gave fans like myself some of the best years of supporting the club to this date.

GK: Petr Cech

This was the easiest decision, with only Carlo Cudicini really coming close to Cech.
