At Chelsea we did that. We were very competitive and very experienced. That’s the main difference.’The 33-year-old, who is still looking to add to his trophy cabinet at Monaco in Ligue 1, will be watching when his two former Premier League clubs meet in the FA Cup final on Saturday at Wembley.last_img read more
