Chelsea bus in 'accident' ahead of Champions League tie with PSG

Simon Rice

Images circulated on social media suggest that Chelsea's team coach was involved in some problems en-route to tonight's Champions League tie with PSG.

Jose Mourinho's side take on the French champions this evening in the first-leg of their Round of 16 match.

One image appears to show a window to the rear of the vehicle to have been broken.

Another image of the team bus shows police inspecting the vehicle after it became wedged whilst trying to drive down a ramp.

There are no reports of anyone being hurt in the incident, with Chelsea's official twitter feed simply stating that the club had arrived at PSG's Parc de Princes stadium an hour-and-a-half before the 7.45pm kick off.

Should Chelsea fail to keep a clean sheet tonight, jokes about failing to park the bus will not be far away. Seemingly pre-empting tonight's problems, on Saturday the offical English twitter feed of PSG mocked Jose Mourinho's defensive tendencies as Zlatan Ibramimovic's side held on to a 2-0 lead during their Ligue 1 match with Caen.

The wrote: "87' PSG forced to "Park the Bus" (shout out to Jose Mourinho!) in the final minutes #PSGSMC".
