Chelsea's fifth succesive title run toughest — Hayes 

Chelsea's fifth succesive title run toughest — Hayes 

Chelsea women's coach Emma Hayes says Chelsea's fifth successive Women's Super League title has been "the toughest, without doubt".

The Blues romped to an emphatic 6-0 victory at Manchester United on the final day of the season and 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 before her new job as the USA Women's national team boss.

"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. 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."

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 told BBC Sport: "I don't think I have the words really. I am full with a ton of different emotions.

"Knowing it is the end and I won't be with this team or these fans again... but they're always in my heart. I am ready, I have given everything I've got. [I am] ready for my next adventure."
