Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez claims Chelsea's underdog status made everyone wanted to play them in the Champions League.
The Blues however ended up dumping the Spanish League outfit out of the competition 3-0 on aggregate in the first knockout stage.
Thomas Tuchel's men also went ahead to defeat Real Madrid in the latter stage of the competition before emerging victorious over Manchester City late last month.
The former Barcelona forward is now taking inspiration from the London club's journey into greatness in the recently concluded campaign as they get ready for the 2021-22 season. He said according to Chelsea News:
“The ambition does not have to stop and why not dream of having that possibility of entering the club’s history and winning a European Cup.
“It would be something incredible, something unique. The teams and the possibilities are not marked by anyone before each season, whether one or the other is a favourite.
“Look at Chelsea, whom everyone wanted to face because they saw them as weak and they ended up winning the Champions League.”
Suarez inspired Atletico Madrid to their first La Liga title since the 2013-14 season after scoring his side's final goal that helped them wrap the season up with a victory.
The win also ensured that they beat city rivals Real Madrid to the title after finishing at the summit of the table with 86 points - two better than Los Blancos.
