After a three week wait Chelsea were finally able to lift the Premier League trophy in front of their fans.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho decided not to get too involved in the celebrations this time, instead sitting off to the side as John Terry and team-mates lifted the trophy on the Stamford Bridge pitch.

Earlier this week Mourinho admitted that he would keep his winners' medal - rather than throw it in the crowd like he did with the first two - as his 15-year-old son Jose Jr is collecting memorabilia.


"They are enjoying the success and I am happy to be here," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"If you want to win (again), there may be some fresh blood to put these guys under pressure.

"Maybe a couple of players will improve the squad - we need that to compete against fantastic opponents."

Didier Drogba, who was carried off in his final game for the Blues, led celebrations on and off the pitch.

The veteran striker, 37, took the trophy for a lap around the pitch before soaking full-back Cesar Azpilicueta with champagne in the dressing room afterwards.
