Watch Rob Green lift Europa League trophy in full kit despite not being on Chelsea bench or getting a medal
CHELSEA goalkeeper Rob Green wore his full kit to lift the Europa League trophy despite not even being on the bench or getting a medal for the win in Baku.
The former England keeper – the Blues' third-choice keeper – was sure as hell not going to miss out on the celebrations and went full John Terry, even though he has gone 645 days without a game.
Chelsea thrashed Arsenal 4-1 thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud, Pedro and Eden Hazard – who Green had up on his shoulders.

One said: "Got to love Rob Green going for the John Terry trophy lift."
Another wrote: "It's 2019 and Rob Green is lifting the Europa league trophy. What a time to be alive."
A fellow user posted: "I love how everyone in the team seems to love Rob Green so much."

"He’s living the dream."
One viewer posted: "Rob Green lifting the Europa league trophy and everyone celebrating is the best thing I’ve seen."
