Serbian striker Mateja Kezman admits that his time at Chelsea was the best he has ever had in football, despite failing to make a significant impact in west London reports

But the 32-year-old frontman, who now plies his trade in Belarus with UEFA Champions League minnows BATE Borisov, insists he doesn't regret any part of his controversial career.

Kezman was at Chelsea during the 2004-05 season after signing from Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven, but bagged just four goals in 25 appearances for the Blues before moving to Atletico Madrid.

However, he still reflects fondly on his time at Stamford Bridge, and will be forever grateful to Russian owner Roman Abramovich for the opportunity to come to England and the Barclays Premier League.


"Chelsea was the best thing in my career," he told Sportske. "That was the climax of my career, for sure. Living and playing in London was something that I will never forget.

"I don't know if I made a mistake because I moved away so quickly. Maybe I do and maybe I don't regret it, but I always believe in my decisions.

"But the transfer to Chelsea made my dreams come true. That was the best thing that ever happened to me.

"Maybe I could achieve more and I could have been more successful at Stamford Bridge, but I don't regret anything."
