Chelsea have been named European Club of the Year by the European Club Association.

The European champions were handed the award by their peers at yesterday’s third annual ECA Awards.

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 Champions League glory as well as winning the FA Cup, although they finished a lowly sixth in the Barclays Premier League.
