Former Chelsea star Michael Ballack was distracted from the spirited cabaret show by Champions League glory
The show must go on! Former Chelsea star Michael Ballack was distracted from the spirited cabaret show while tethered to his phone to watch old Man beat City to win the Champions League final.
- Chelsea was crowned champion of Europe for the second time on Saturday
- Michael Ballack couldn’t be there for the game, but watch from Ibiza
- The German was in a nightclub and had his phone set while the game was playing
Not even an Ibiza nightclub could distract Michael Ballack from the Champions League final, with the German ignoring two spirited cabaret dancers next to him to focus on the game.
Chelsea lifted their second Champions League crown on Saturday night after a Thomas Tuchel masterclass over Manchester City, with Ballack backing his former club from afar.
The ex-midfielder didn’t make it to Porto for the big night, but was in the perfect place to celebrate after the final whistle sounded.

The former Germany international had no interest in the two cabaret dancers on stage
In the hilarious clip, Ballack sits next to the stage in Lio, a club in Ibiza Town’s marina.
The former Germany captain never looked up when the two dancers walked around in skimpy outfits to Beyonce’s ‘Run The World’, and they even seemed to comment on the match against a friend next to him.
After seven minutes of nail-biting injury time, Ballack was finally able to relax and enjoy the party island as Tuchel’s team paraded the trophy in Porto.

Ballack won the Premier League title with Chelsea, but never tasted glory in Europe in London
Ballack played for Chelsea between 2006 and 2010, taking on the Premier League, three FA Cups and the League Cup.
His spell in West London didn’t last long enough to be part of Chelsea’s 2011/2012 season, when Roberto Di Matteo, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Co took home London’s first European Cup.
The 44-year-old would have been delighted to see a crop of German stars lift the title with big ears, with Kai Havertz scoring the winner, Antonio Rudiger playing a monumental performance in the back and Timo Werner playing for 66 minutes.
