Leading the way – Chelsea’s cup-winning captains

Dennis Wise

An FA Cup winner with Wimbledon in 1988, Wise moved north of the Thames two years later and enjoyed a fruitful 11-season spell at the Bridge which culminated in him lifting five trophies in four seasons from 1997 to 2000 as he captained us to victory in two FA Cups, the League Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup and Super Cup. The feisty and combative midfielder often bossed proceedings in the middle of the pitch for the Blues and was named Man of the Match in our 1998 League Cup and 2000 FA Cup triumphs.
