Yossi Benayoun is looking to play for the Blues again
Former Arsenal loanee Yossi Benayoun is looking to force his way into Roberto Di Matteo’s Chelsea side for next season.
The Israel international spent last season on loan at the Gunners and became a fan favourite with the north London club.
“Now I am back at Chelsea for pre-season, the hard part of football, and I’m trying to do my best in front of Robbie, so we will just have to see what happens in the future,” Benayoun told the club’s official website.
“A lot has happened since I was last here. Unfortunately it didn’t work out with Andre Villas-Boas, results weren’t good enough but Robbie took the team, and we won the FA Cup and Champions League. I kept in touch and it was just great to see the club winning these trophies.
“I was at home for the Champions League Final, as the next day I was joining up with the national team. It was amazing to watch and enjoy. When you thought Bayern would win it, suddenly Didier Drogba was there like always to score an important goal and of course I was so happy for the club, the players and the owner. Hopefully this season the club will win a few trophies again.”
