Chelsea's German midfielder Michael Ballack says his side are desperate to win a trophy this season after finishing as runners-up at home and in Europe last season. The Blues are in the semi-finals of both the Champions League and FA Cup and are still in the hunt for the Premier League title, with Ballack desperate to earn some silverware. He said: "The hunger is always there. I've played football my whole life and I still want to win something. "I have a few years left, but I will give everything for the rest of the season to win one, two or three trophies. "We will give everything for the FA Cup, Champions League and Premier League. We have the squad and we will do it. "The team is hungry after finishing runners-up three times last season. "We are not a team who have won everything in the past. If you compare us to a club like Liverpool, they have had big success. But now we are smelling success. "We are coming close to winning something. This club needs a big title to go further and that's what we are trying to achieve at the moment."
