Chelsea crowned European Club of the Year
Chelsea: Premier League club honoured for European and domestic success

Chelsea have been rewarded for their achievements last season by being named European Club of the Year by the European Club Association.

The UEFA Champions League winners were handed the award by their peers at the third annual ECA Awards on Monday.

Chelsea were recognised "for their outstanding achievement during the 2011-12 season on a European and domestic level".

Last term saw the Blues finally end their wait for European Cup glory as well as winning the FA Cup, although they finished a lowly sixth in the Premier League.

However, their dramatic penalty shoot-out success over Bayern Munich ensured they would remain at the top table of continental competition, qualifying by right as winners.

Roberto di Matteo turned the club's fortunes around in the cup competitions after replacing Andre Villas-Boas at the helm in March, but was unable to improve their league standing.
