Abramovich biggest greetings to Cesar Azpilicueta and Thomas Tuchel after meeting for the first time in Champions league final



For the second time as Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich got to watch his side claim the biggest prize in European football.

The Russian flew into Porto for last night’s Champions League final against Manchester City and, like Blues fans across the world, was a nervous spectator throughout.

The contest was settled by Kai Havertz’s first-half goal and after the full-time whistle was blown and the wild celebrations began on the pitch, Abramovich left his seat and made his way down to tunnel. He would watch the Blues lift the trophy at ground level.

Abramovich waited by the entrance to the tunnel at the Estadio do Dragao to congratulate every Chelsea player as they headed into the dressing room. His biggest greeting, though, was reserved for Cesar Azpilicueta.

The German admitted their conversation was short but insists they will sit down and talk properly in the coming days.

“I spoke to the owner right now on the pitch. I think it was the best moment for a first meeting. Or the worst as from now on it can only get worse! We will speak [more] later and tomorrow and I’m looking forward to this.
