Chelsea’s dressing room erupted into a part after the Blues swept aside Spanish champions Real Madrid to reach the UEFA Champions League final on Wednesday night.
Thoma Tuchel & co. will contest on all-English showpiece against Manchester City on May 29 after overcoming the Spanish champions 4-1 on aggregate, with Timo Werner and Mason Mount on target in the semi-final second-leg to secure a 2-0 win on the night, with the squad gearing up for two finals.
It will be Chelsea’s first UEFA Champions League final for nine years, and the players didn’t take long to get the celebrations going after heading back down the tunnel at Stamford Bridge.
With no supporters to enjoy the occasion with inside the stadium, the players huddled together with music blaring in the background in the dressing room.
Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was at the forefront, holding a camera to record the squad bouncing around and screaming and pumping their fists in the air.
But it wasn’t just the players who were getting excited – Chelsea’s kitman even got involved in the occasion as he was filmed by left-back Ben Chilwell dancing in the middle of the room.
The defender then encouraged him to ‘do the worm’, and he duly obliged, getting down to wriggle around on the floor, with delighted goalscorer Mount stepping in to dance alongside him.
Eden Hazard, meanwhile, was in great spirits at the full-time whistle after Madrid failed to reach the UEFA Champions League final.
The Belgian star returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his £100million switch to Los Blancos in 2019.
After made return to action last month in Madrid’s goalless draw against Real Betis, Hazard was starting given a chance to back to full fitness and he was once again handed another chance in the semi-final second-leg tie against his old club.
And despite his side failed to reach the UEFA Champions League, Hazard didn’t exactly look devastated about the result as cameras followed the Belgian star onto Stamford Bridge pitch after the final whistle.
He was spotted hugging some of his former teammates, including Kurt Zouma – and shared a touching moment with Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta as they both left the field.
