Chelsea’s victorious players have returned to Cobham with the Champions League trophy after winning their second European title on Saturday.
The Blues beat Manchester City 1-0 goal by Kai Havertz during the first half at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto on Saturday night.

Blues skipper Azpilicueta and striker Olivier Giroud had previously kept a very close eye on it after lifting it in Portugal at the weekend.

Azpilicueta said after the match: ‘That’s done, we are very happy, we will celebrate, we are champions of Europe again after nine years, second time in our history.

‘I’m pleased that I could get my hands on the trophy that I missed before. But that’s gone, we are part of the history of Chelsea and then we will go for the next challenge. ‘I was proud to lead the team out but I wanted to be prouder.

‘Of course to lift the trophy, to lead the team, this club, it’s amazing after nine years to get this chance and thank you to my whole team mates, for the staff, to make this moment possible is incredible. It was very emotional and of course I’m very happy.’
