Nights like those on May 29 earlier this year show just how strong of a leader Thiago is, not least because he chose to override his own personal disappointment to help his fellow defenders keep City at bay. The footage in the documentary showcases just how tightly bonded this Blues squad is, and the range of characters that makes Thomas Tuchel’s men so special.
The first episode of Porto Uncovered will be available on The 5th Stand app and the official Chelsea website from Tuesday. Using exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes content, it brings you the real story of our 2021 Champions League triumph, told through the eyes of the players, staff and supporters who were at the heart of that famous victory.
Episode One follows our gruelling route to the final and the challenges we overcame to reach Porto. Episode Two, which comes out on Thursday, picks up the tale at the Estadio do Dragao by looking at the preparations for the final, the match itself and the incredible celebrations on the pitch, in the dressing room and in the stands.
