Chelsea emphatically secured their second Europa League with a 4-1 win over Premier League rivals Arsenal in Baku on Wednesday.
While the night largely belonged to Eden Hazard, who netted a brace in what many believe was his final game for the Blues before a potential summer move to Real Madrid, another hero emerged during the celebrations.
That person was none other than Rob Green. The former West Ham shot stopper channelled his inner 2012 John Terry to join his Chelsea teammates to lift the Europa League trophy to create one of the everlasting images of the final.
Despite announcing his retirement after the final, it hasn't stopped Chelsea posting a mockumentary style promotional video on Twitter regarding Green and the post-match shenanigans in Azerbaijan's capital.
Accompanied with dramatic music and cuts to events in Baku, Green provided the voice over for the video, which began: "
"They [Chelsea] needed more than a leader on the pitch, they needed a leader that wasn't actually playing. This is my chance to give something back.
“I’ll never forget the look on Willian’s face. He just looked at me and said, ‘What are you doing here!’”— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) May 31, 2019

"The emotion was real. Look at David Luiz.
The video appeared to have finished, before the 39-year-old rounded it off with the late quip ahead of the upcoming Champions League final, adding: "Are we done? I've just got to get a flight to Madrid!"
