Breakfast of champions! Giroud and Azpilicueta dine with the trophy

Olivier Giroud and Cesar Azpilicueta have wasted no time getting acquainted with Chelsea’s new silverware.

The pair were seen dining with the Champions League trophy in Porto after overcoming Manchester City on Saturday night.

It was German forward Kai Havertz who scored the only goal of the game to give the Blues their second triumph in the competition after success in 2012.

Giroud took to Twitter to share a picture of himself having breakfast alongside the Champions League trophy.

While Azpilicueta was sat alongside the iconic piece of silverware for his morning coffee in Porto.

Speaking after the game, Azpilicueta said he is eyeing a sustained period of Chelsea dominance and that the club have silenced their doubters.

The Chelsea captain said: ‘When you play for a club like Chelsea, you always think in the future.

‘That's done, we are very happy, we will celebrate, we are champions of Europe again after nine years, second time in our history.

‘But football is like this, the ones who go to the Euros get a new challenge ahead of us, we will come back in the Premier League, we didn't finish where we wanted to finish and we want to fight for everything.

‘At Chelsea, I always learned that we go for every single game, fight for every single trophy and 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, as I said before the game, 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.

‘Emotions coming through, was very emotional and of course I'm very happy.’
