Following the league title victory of Chelsea Football Club (FC) on Friday, A die-hard Chelsea Football Club (FC) of England fan in Abakaliki, Nigeria has named his newly-delivered baby-boy Antonio Moses. It will be recall that on Friday night Chelsea defeated West Bromwich Albion 1-0 to win the league title with two matches to play.
The fan, Mathew Irondu, a Construction Engineer, told NAN on Saturday that he named the boy, born last Thursday after the club’s Coach Antonio Conte and Nigerian star, Victor Moses as his own way of celebrating the win.
According to him, the duo among other Chelsea players, were instrumental to the club’s stunning league success,
‘this win is most significant for me because it is the first by Chelsea since I switched my supporter ship to the club from Arsenal FC. I had endured years of EPL drought from Arsenal which made me switch to Chelsea and I celebrated it this way because I don’t have money to make merriment’.
He also said:
‘this is my first child and I fervently pray that his birth, a day before Chelsea’s league win, will bring good tidings to my family, the club and their fans across the globe’.
Irondu remarked that the coach displayed his managerial acumen by correcting the team’s deficiencies and subsequently made the players world-beaters.
He advised the players not to be swayed by the euphoria of the win but redouble their efforts to win the season’s double with the FA cup and improved performances next season.
