Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain admitted Chelsea’s dramatic victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on penalties will prove a source of inspiration for the Arsenal midfielder to win titles with club and country.

Arsenal and England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: “What I’ve witnessed tonight has inspired me to try and help both club and country achieve great things.”

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere: “Every English man should be proud of Chelsea! Even Arsenal and Spurs fans! What a season it was!”

Gunners defender Bacary Sagna: “Looking at them just wanna make me celebrate something with my team as well.”

Sunderland centre-half Titus Bramble: “I don’t care what anyone says about Drogba, for years he’s made Chelsea what they are.”

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott: “Congrats Chelsea. Uefa need to change the rule book if our sixth place team wins the Champions League. Must mean the Premier League should have more places.”

Former England and Everton goalkeeper Nigel Martyn: “Cech’s second penalty save from Schweinsteiger was class but barely got a mention #keepersunion”

Queens Park Rangers captain Joseph Barton: “Horrible way to lose on penalties but great for the neutral. Feel nothing for the Germans as they have won more than enough shoot-outs.”

Barton added: “Will all the subs and fringe players please leave the trophy alone! Let the chaps lift it. Happy for Lampard and co.”

Champions League winner Luis Garcia: “Great game, exciting until the end. Congratulations to Chelsea and the Spanish players are there.”
