Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has set his sights on claiming back-to-back Premier League titles.
An astonishing 8-0 win over Wigan saw them finish a point above Manchester United to claim their first league title in four years.
Chelsea last won the crown under ex-boss Jose Mourinho, who led them to successive league titles.
Ancelotti, in his first season at Stamford Bridge, is eyeing Mourinho’s feat.
“I think Mourinho did a fantastic job here,” Ancelotti said. “He won two titles consecutively.
“This is my first, and I hope to do the same as Mourinho.”
Of his team’s title triumph, the Italian felt his players deserved their success.
“I think that this club will have a future because these players are not so old and we have a very good squad, for next year and the years after,” he added. “We had a fantastic season, not only by winning the Premier League but because we showed a good style on the pitch. After the first year, I hope to stay here a long time and win a lot of titles.
“We closed the season very well with a fantastic performance I think that, at the start of this match, there was a bit of pressure on us and we didn’t play so well. But we played much better in the second half. We played a good match and won, and that was our aim.
“To win this game and close this title. We are very happy and I want to say a lot of thanks: to my owner, Roman Abramovich; to my club and everyone who worked with me in this season, supporting me every day; and above all my players.
“I found a fantastic team here who worked very well every day, maintaining a good atmosphere as a team. We won this title because we played as a team and worked as a team, everyone. Not only the players. Everyone at the club who was involved this season wanted to win this title and, in the end, everyone did a fantastic job.
“It’s a fantastic moment. I remember every victory because every one stays in your mind. I’m happy to have done this in my first season. I had a lot of help because I found a team and a club with fantastic organisation. So it was easy for me to do my best.
“We had fantastic opponents and Manchester United stayed with us right to the end. I said it would go to the last game, so we have to be proud and happy that we won against such a fantastic team like United. They were a very good opponent.”
