Following the Blues’ victory over the Citizens, the African football icons have joined the rest of the world in celebrating Thomas Tuchel’s men
Didier Drogba, John Obi Mikel, Michael Essien and Samuel Eto’o have sent congratulatory messages to Chelsea following their Champions League triumph.
The Stamford Bridge giants silenced Manchester City 1-0 at the Estadio do Dragao to be crowned as kings of Europe for the second time in their history.
Profiting from an assist from Mason Mount, Kai Havertz slotted the ball into the net after beating goalkeeper Ederson Moraes.
That 42nd-minute effort separated the two teams in Portugal as Pep Guardiola’s men would have themselves to blame for their inability to turn things around despite boasting of superior ball possession.
As the world continues to celebrate Thomas Tuchel’s men, the former Chelsea stars have taken to social media to join the celebration.
Essien – who spent 14 years at the club and was part of the Blues’ team when they won the European diadem for the very first time in 20212 – took to Instagram to laud the heroics of his former side.
