This official club book is packed with exclusive, never-seen-before photographs following the Chelsea players throughout the glorious UEFA Champions League campaign, going behind the scenes as the Blues overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to be crowned European champions. Relive the excitement of every match, from the opening group stage victory over Bayer Leverkusen to those unforgettable evenings when Barcelona and Bayern Munich were beaten in their own back yard. We go inside the dressing room, join the squad on their flights across Europe and get right to the heart of the club's preparation and celebrations. There is a detailed focus on the final when, on a night of unbearable tension and unremitting drama, Didier Drogba signed off in style as he headed a late equaliser and then struck the winning penalty. The book also profiles the men who made history,while there are reflections on the achievement from manager Roberto Di Matteo and a host of Chelsea legends. As well as the match action, there are stunning images of the players in training and relaxing away from the intensity of sporting combat. The pictures in the book get right to the heart of what makes this side special and offer unprecedented access to the team as they completed a cup double. There is also all the colour of the homecoming parade when the players were joyously acclaimed by Chelsea's delirious fans. Supporters also feature in this exclusive book thanks to a special Scroll of Honour which is printed in the publication. Written and designed by the team behind Chelsea's official monthly magazine and matchday programme, Kings of Europe is a must-have souvenir for all those who flock to the King's Road.
