Roman Abramovich got to watch his side challenge the biggest prize in European football for the second time as Chelsea owner.

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

The match was decided by Kai Havertz’s first-half goal and after the full-time whistle was blown and the exuberant celebrations began on the pitch.

Abramovich left his seat and made his way down to the tunnel. He would watch the Blues lift the trophy at ground level.

Abramovich remained by the way to the tunnel at the Estadio do Dragao to salute every Chelsea player as they went into the dressing room. His biggest attention, though, was saved for Cesar Azpilicueta.

The Spaniard and Abramovich shared a warm embrace before Azpilicuta, as caught by Chelsea’s in-house media, said: “It’s yours. I don’t know where the trophy is, but I’ll bring it to you.”

Azpilicueta went away from Abramovich before reappearing seconds later, trophy very much not in hand. No matter. And he decided to ask the Chelsea owner a rather simple question: “Are you happy?”

With a huge smile on his face, Abramovich responded: “Yeah, of course. Absolutely.”

While down on the pitch in Porto, Thomas Tuchel was eventually able to meet and speak to Abramovich for the first time since taking charge at Stamford Bridge in January.

The German confirmed their conversation was short but maintains they will sit down and talk well 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.

“I can assure him I’ll stay hungry, that I want the next title, I feel absolutely happy and part of a really ambitious club and a strong group that suits my beliefs and passions about football in this moment perfectly.

“My desire is go for more victories, my desire is to push the group from the first day of next season to the limit. We have work to do to close the gap and this is what I am all about.

“It will be nice to meet him a bit closer. We are in contact, not personal, but we are in constant contact. He knows what’s going on from me directly. It was nice to meet him.”
