Blues on the booze: Chelsea stars party after lifting FA Cup
01 June 2009 01:12
Guus Hiddink didn't hang around for the party, but Chelsea stars celebrated their FA Cup glory with a boozy night at a trendy London nightclub.
Their departing coach was already on a flight back to Russia - with a personalised Rolex watch from the players - as the Blues stars toasted the season at Movida.
But there was a surprise for star midfielder Frank Lampard, whose former fiancee, Elen Rives made an unexpected entrance at the same club.
Lampard, who seemed unphased by Rives' arrival, enjoyed Chelsea's celebrations to the full, staying out until 4am.
Rives, however, seemed somewhat worse for wear and made a hasty departure soon after she got there at 2am.
Maybe this could have had something to do with Lamapard's new blonde friend, who had accompanied him there.
The Chelsea star and his fellow players enjoyed attention from screaming fans in revealing outfits, on arrival at the club, and were later joined by Manchester United star Wayne Rooney
and wife Coleen. The Rooneys, who are expecting their first child, had been dining at celebrity haunt The Ivy with Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones.
John Terry joined the party after a celebration dinner with some of his family at Frankies in Kensington.
And Michael Ballack, Didier Drogba, Salamon Kalou, Juliano Belletti, Michael Essien, Florent Malouda, Franco di Santo, Michael Mancienne, and Michael Ballack were among those at Movida.
