Ivanovic hails Blues business

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has praised the club’s transfer business and believes the squad is much stronger for it.

The Blues have spent a fair amount of money to bring in Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Felipe Luis during the current transfer window, while Didier Drogba has also returned to the club.

And Ivanovic believes the west Londoners now have a squad capable of challenging for silverware on all fronts next season.

“I think we will be much more creative in attack with the new players that we got in the summer,” he told Slovenian sports website Nogomania.

“Now we have a lot of players that are really strong in attacking moves, so I believe that we will be really strong. And I also hope that we will be strong enough to win some trophies.

“But it will not be easy, it never is. We have a quality team – that is for sure. We already had it last season when we fought until the end for the title.

“And don’t forget, we were also in the Champions League semi-final. But as I said, I believe that we are even stronger now with these new players, so I hope the new season will be even better for us.

“But we will have to be stronger until the end and you also need a lot of luck.”
