Chelsea Fc was awarded the 2021 best team of the year at the ballon d’Or ceremony. This is a year to remember for Chelsea following the success in both men’s and women’s team.
The blues worked hard to reach the FA Cup Final and won the Champions league after defeating ManCity in Porto. They also won the Super cup competition against Villarreal and are currently first on the Premier League table.
However, the Chelsea Women also won the Women Super Cup title for the second consecutive time. They successfully defended the league title they won in 2020.
Thomas Tuchel commented that it was a nice trophy and the team deserves it. Jorginho finished 3rd in the men’s ballon d’Or rankings behind Lewandowski and Messi as Kante emerged 5th.
Edouard Mendy emerged second in the 2021 Yashin Trophy for best keeper. Despite winning the UCL and Super Cup Competition with more clean sheet, Donnarumma was ranked ahead of him with majority vote.
