INCREDIBLE footage has emerged of Chelsea team-mates Mason Mount and Trevoh Chalobah ballboying during the 2012 win over Barcelona.
The first-team duo, both 22, played alongside each other in Chalobah’s senior debut for the Blues against Villarreal on Wednesday.
But nine years before lifting the Uefa Super Cup, they were sat beside one another at Stamford Bridge helping collect the balls.
And a video shared by BT Sport showed Chelsea academy team-mates Mount and Chalobah, who joined ages six and eight respectively, sat in the corner as Lionel Messi trotted over to take the set piece.
Didier Drogba scored the only goal of the game on that night in April 2012 with a sweet left-footed finish.
That ensured a first-leg advantage in the Champions League semi-finals before Ramires and Fernando Torres sent Roberto Di Matteo’s ten-man Blues into the final, where they beat Bayern Munich on penalties.
After getting a front-row view of that successful European run, Mount played a key role on the field last season as Thomas Tuchel led Chelsea to their second Champions League crown.
He scored crucial goals against Porto and Real Madrid before Kai Havertz grabbed the winner to see off Manchester City in the final.

Chalobah, meanwhile, has been introduced into the first-team fold in this pre-season.
He has spent the last three seasons out on loan with Ipswich, Huddersfield and Lorient.
But after impressing at Cobham over the summer, he played the full Super Cup in a back three with Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger.
Chelsea drew 1-1 with the Europa League winners before Kepa Arrizabalaga came off the bench to be the hero in the shootout.

Chalobah, younger brother of Watford ace Nathaniel, will be hoping he has done enough to earn his Premier League debut this weekend.
The Blues take on Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge with a 3pm kick-off on Saturday.
But £97.5million record signing Romelu Lukaku is likely to have to wait another week to make his debut after only arriving in London on Wednesday to secure his transfer.
