Chelsea’s victorious players have returned to Cobham with the UEFA Champions League trophy after their second European title on Saturday.
The Blues overcame Manchester City 1-0 at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto on Saturday night thanks to Kai Havertz’ lovely strike in the first-half.
Celebrations went on long into the night, with manager Thomas Tuchel partying with players until the early hours and champagne flowing to celebrate the club conquering Europe once again.
And skipper Cesar Azpilicueta was keeping a close eye on the famous trophy upon their return to the club’s training facilities in Cobham, Surrey.
The Spanish defender disembarked the team bus proudly cradling the weighty silver cup, and paraded throughout the grounds with it on his head, still wearing his medal from the final, before the entire squad gathered around the trophy for a photo.
Blues captain Azpilicueta and striker Olivier Giroud had previously kept a very close eye on it after lifting it in Portugal at the weekend.
The duo did have to part ways with the trophy momentarily as the cup was passed through an airport scanner on their way home.
The trophy, which was referred to as ‘special baggage’, was given the once-over before being returned to its rightful owners.
