Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck, has revealed how Roman Abramovich is targeting more European success following Saturday's Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich.

The Russian oligarch made a speech in the dressing room after the game at the Allianz Arena, telling his players that their European triumph is only the beginning.

"Roman told them that there is plenty more to aim for," Buck told the Sun. "There's a lot of clubs with three or four of those stars on their club badge.

"We have only one. Roman gave a thank you speech, the message was that it was all down to the boys."

Only Bayern, Ajax and Barcelona have been crowned European champions four times, and proudly wear the four stars to signify their success.

The future of striker Didier Drogba and interim boss, Roberto Di Matteo has yet to be discussed, but Buck confirmed talks will start with the out-of-contract forward this week.

"We haven't set a timescale for a decision. Roman will be in London this week and we have to start thinking about it," continued the chairman.

"We've heard from a number of players that they'd like to see Robbie as manager."

Despite sinking the penalty that won the club's first ever Champions League trophy, even the billionaire businessman will find it hard to match Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua's £11million offer.

Buck said: "We love Didier. But we have to think what's right for Chelsea - and Didier has to do what's right for him."

Abramovich also joined his Chelsea team on a victory bus parade around west London in front of 80,000 fans, showing off the Champions League trophy and the FA Cup.
