Thomas Tuchel has revealed why his trainers figured prominently in celebrations after Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester City in the 2021 Champions League final.
The Blues headed back to their dressing room on the back of a memorable European triumph to revel in their success away from prying eyes.
When Tuchel joined the party, with champagne bottle in hand, events took a bizarre turn as his footwear became the centre of attention.
Olivier Giroud, Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma were quick to get involved with Tuchel’s trainers when their manager arrived for the post-match celebrations.
The German’s footwear was doused in champagne as it suddenly became central to a party that should have been focused on a famous piece of continental silverware.
