Blues fans must remember Damien Duff, one of the first signing of Roman Abramovich era; actually it was more of a “high-profile” £17 million move from Blackburn Rovers that put out a statement of intent from Roman.
Signed by Claudio Ranieri in 2003, it was actually Jose Mourinho who made the Irishman one of the most fearsome wingers of the Premier League and Europe.
His dangerous partnership with Arjen Robben is still the one that Chelsea fans pleasantly talk about after all these years. With Duff and Mourinho at the helms, Chelsea landed a Premier League and League Cup double in the 2004/05 season following it with another League title the next season.
