Chelsea skipper John Terry was involved in an "unfortunate" accident which resulted in one of the club's security staff suffering a badly bruised leg after the Champions League defeat to Inter Milan.
Terry, 29, was not aware of the injury at the time but spoke to the police and the member of staff when he was made aware of the incident.
"We can confirm there was an unfortunate accident as John Terry left Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night," said a Chelsea spokesman.
"When driving out of the stadium at approximately 1-2mph in a queue of traffic exiting the ground, his car was surrounded by photographers and fans.
"In the melee that ensued a member of Chelsea's security staff was knocked to the ground, making contact with the car. He suffered a badly bruised leg.
"John was aware at the time that there was a lot of contact with his car during the incident, but not that anyone was injured as a result.
"Upon hearing of the injury, John spoke to the police. He has also been in contact with the staff member to check on his welfare."
