The Portuguese side's season has collapsed inside a week. Remarkable. You have to feel for Jorge Jesus & Co.
Erm... that sign-off wasn't supposed to be as depressing as it turned out to be...
@JckBly: I am a CFC fan in the minority but I think he's brilliant. Right manager, wrong time. Shame he had to come at the cost of RDM.
"I can only congratulate Chelsea for the victory, but we didn't lack quality. I still think we played well, we were the best team. We had more control and opportunities to score, but had no luck. The best team doesn't always win."
Current boss Carlo Ancelotti was recently approached by Real Madrid to replace the reportedly departing Jose Mourinho.
And that, ladies and gents, is what is called the managerial merry-go-round.
"My future? I still have a game and I have a title to celebrate. We will have time to think about it. At Paris [Saint-Germain] next season? You never know."
Our very own Joe Doyle pipes up with this gem: "For the next 10 days, Fernando Torres is reigning World Cup, European Championship, Champions League and Europa League winner."
"Chelsea came back in the same manner as Porto did [at the weekend]. We conceded a goal from a set piece at the very end.
"It was a final with two good teams on show, but Benfica were on top for nearly the entire match. We lacked a slight tinge of luck to gain an advantage. And even after we equalised, we created a chance which we should have taken.
"We played a great game, but football punished us a game in which, on the basis of how we performed, we should have been the winners."
"I really, really hope so [that I’ll be around next year]," he told ITV. "We are getting there. With the game tonight and the game on Sunday we haven’t sat down to really complete it yet but the club have been brilliant so it looks good.
"It was tight at times tonight it’s been a long season and everything in it and we’ve shown time and time again what we’re about. Nobody deserves it more than Ivanovic he’s been amazing.
"We are fortunate but you make your own luck, it’s been a long season but we’ve stuck together along with the fans and the club deserves it."
"We didn’t have the legs. We had to adjust and push them and in the end they deserve it because they’ve been working so hard the whole season.
"Obviously I’ll be proud because it was not easy. We have been talking about this all the time. So really pleased, really proud."
"The first half was not good enough at all, in any way. The intensity, the concentration. We talked about changing [at half-time] our mentality to win a final, it’s a final. Maybe this would be the only chance to win a Europa League so you saw a difference in the second half.
Torres' future with Chelsea has been in doubt recently after the club were linked with other strikers, but the Spaniard has no intention of leaving anytime soon.
"I signed a five-and-a-half-year contract so I hope to stay for at least this time," he added.
This is Chelsea's 11th trophy in 10 years under nine different managers.
"It was a great feeling to play a final [after missing out last year]. Another European final for us as a team and a great win for us. Now it’s time to celebrate."
John Terry is there, shinpads an' all (I'm assuming).
"The Benfica players and fans are absolutely devastated, while the Chelsea players are celebrating yet another European trophy. They might have been second-best throughout the game, but the Chelsea fans will care very little about that. Congratulations to Rafa Benitez and his men!"
"Ten days before Chelsea will have to stop calling themselves the Champions of Europe - tonight, in the Amsterdam ArenA, Chelsea are Champions of EuropA!"
