Chelsea win WSL title: Emma Hayes’ ‘toughest’ league triumph

Written by on May 18, 2024

Emma Hayes says Chelsea’s fifth successive Women’s Super League title has been “the toughest, without doubt”.

An emphatic 6-0 victory at Manchester United on the final day of the season meant they beat Manchester City to the crown on goal difference.

Hayes, 47, signed off her reign with a seventh WSL title after 12 years as Chelsea manager.

“I can’t say it’s my most enjoyable but it’s definitely been the toughest, without doubt, and for that reason probably the sweetest,” she told Sky Sports.

“I’m just so relieved it’s over.”

Hayes will become manager of the United States women’s team before this summer’s Olympic Games in Paris.

In addition to her seven league titles with Chelsea, she has won five FA Cups, two League Cups and a Community Shield during her Blues career.

Reflecting on her time at Chelsea, Hayes added: “Great memories, listening to the fans, the connection with the players. I just haven’t got any more to give – I know that.

“The hardest thing to do is five in a row because people take their eye off the ball. My legacy is winning while building a team for the future.”
