Di Matteo oversees overhaul of Chelsea's attack
LONDON (AP) - Despite Chelsea winning its first Champions League trophy and seventh FA Cup last season, manager Roberto Di Matteo has spent the offseason overhauling the club's attacking options ahead of the upcoming Premier League campaign.
Attacking playmaker Eden Hazard left French club Lille for Stamford Bridge in a transfer worth 33 million euros (S$51 million). The 21-year-old Belgian international was linked to both Manchester clubs but said the penalty shootout victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final persuaded him to join Chelsea.
"It's true that initially there were a number of clubs in for me but when Chelsea won the Champions League, I thought why not?" Hazard said.
"By anybody's standards, winning two cups is a great achievement, so it will be a big challenge to do better."
