Chelsea are confident damage to a replica Champions League trophy was accidental.

Members of night-shift security staff posed with the replica European Cup at Stamford Bridge for personal photographs, during which time one of the handles came away.

Chelsea had been passing the trophy around departments during the week for the 400-strong staff to have photos taken.

A club spokesman said: "The trophy was accidentally damaged while pictures were being taken.

"It was minor damage and has already been repaired. We don't make comment on staff matters."
