Gary Cahill believes that winning the Champions League with Chelsea last season could end up being the highlight of his career.

Defender Cahill is in line to make his 50th appearance for the Blues when the west Londoners take on Reading on Wednesday night.

The centre-half recovered from a knee injury in time to help Chelsea lift the trophy with a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Bayern Munich back in May.

And the 27-year-old reckons that lifting the trophy could end up being the pinnacle of his career.

“The highlight is clearly the Champions League final,” said Cahill. “That could be the highlight of my career, but there have been a lot of good times.

“We’ve missed out on a couple of trophies this season which has been disappointing, but there are ups and downs and hopefully there will be more ups than downs.

“In the future I want to be a big part of the squad and help this club go forward and win more trophies.”
