It has been just three years since the 29-year-old won his first trophy with the Blues. In 2012 they fought back from a goal behind to win the Champions League against Bayern Munich as well as picking up the FA Cup, and the season after they managed to win the Europa League.

Current manager Jose Mourinho endured a trophyless campaign last time round, but he has come good over the past season to complete the England international’s haul. This means that no player has as short a time between the first and last trophy of the set as Cahill.

The centre-back has also played an important part in winning each competition. He has been a mainstay alongside captain John Terry in defence, and even stayed in the side when Rafa Benitez dropped the Stamford Bridge legend in 2013.

The player is delighted with the accolade: “I never imagined it but I dreamed about it and hoped it would be possible. I don’t think you sit there as a young boy thinking you want a full set of medals, you just want to achieve something.

“In football you go from hurdle to hurdle, there’s always something to motivate you, always something you want to get. I’ve been here three-and-a-half years and to do it so quickly is amazing.”
