London: Chelsea captain John Terry and senior striker Didier Drogba believe that the current season can still turn into the best one in the club’s history if they manage to win both the Champions League and the FA Cup.

They believe winning trophies in those two competitions would go a long way to silence the critics who are of the opinion that owner Roman Abramovich’s constant meddling and managerial sackings have cost the club big time.

Although Terry accepts his side is out of the Premier League title race, he thinks a glorious double is definitely up for grabs.

“With the FA Cup and the Champions League still to play for, it could still go down as one of the best seasons in Chelsea’s history,” the Daily Star quoted Terry as saying.

Meanwhile, Drogba believes the constant criticism faced by Chelsea have spurred players at the club to come back to their winning ways.

The Ivory Coast forward is also confident that the revived Blues can win the Champions League as well as the FA Cup.

“We are really happy about our Champions League chances. We can do it. Being written off has been a great motivation. And beating Napoli was a good example of what we can do when we have that extra motivation,” Drogba said.
