John Terry has claimed that the hunger for Chelsea to win a title comes from their near misses in recent seasons. The Blues ended up in third place in the Prem last year and were also trophy-less.
However, they have gotten off to a great start this season, winning three games out of three so far and John Terry believes that Chelsea are ready to lift the title this year. He said:
“For me the hunger is there from not winning the League. We need to get back to winning the title. It has been four years since we last did it but I believe we have the squad to do it. We are so driven.”
The defender has also admitted that it has been a difficult past few seasons for the club, seeing other teams win the league instead of them. He added:
“Naturally. No player should stand there when seeing another team succeed and not feel hurt. We came so close in the League last season, Liverpool probably feel the same. When you play all those games and just lose out at the end, it’s disappointing, it’s heartbreaking.
“This is what you work all season for, it’s what you live for. I want to win trophies, last year we didn’t. We’re not more determined because we always are but with the signings the owner made, we will go for it again.”
