The stepdaughter of Ukraine’s football federation chief has caused outrage after posing with the Champions League trophy “as if it was a toy”. Lisa Chaus, five, was pictured with the trophy reportedly in the back of her 24-year-old mother Ekaterina’s luxury Range Rover.
Glamorous Ekaterina Chaus is the partner of federation chief Andriy Pavelko.
The image has caused a storm on social media in Ukraine which hosts the final between Liverpool and Real Madrid in Kiev on May 26.
Pavelko, 42, is seen as a divisive figure by many football fans and the image with the Champions League Cup soon went viral.
Lisa is the daughter of Ekaterina and her former footballer husband Konstantin Chaus, 27.
Blogger Ivan Oberemko posted: “This is the stepdaughter of the brazen Pavelko, president of the Football Federation.”
A Pavelko relative who is an alleged Ukrainian “criminal authority” had also posed with the cup, he said. The man was named as Alexander Petrovsky, nicknamed Narik.
The Champions League trophy was shown-off throughout Ukraine ahead of the Kiev final..
