Before the UEFA Super Cup, the cup is presented in Helsinki – and a dent in the coveted trophy catches the eye.
What happened to the handle pot?
Karim Benzema carried the Champions League trophy into the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki during the UEFA Super Cup between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt – so far, so normal.
However: On the TV pictures it was clearly visible that the handle cup had a dent on the lower left area.
It is not yet known whether the most coveted trophy in European club football was damaged immediately before the match or already during the transfer from Madrid to Helsinki.
Only Chelsea FC have so far managed to demolish the trophy after their Champions League triumph in 2012. According to the English club, three members of staff had wanted to be photographed with the trophy when the mishap occurred.
