Chelsea’s official Twitter released a superb video yesterday that has gone viral, attracting over 11k retweets at the time of writing.
In a heartwarming video clip, the mother of new Chelsea signing Jorginho can’t hold back the tears of pride as she sees her son’s name on a Blues shirt in the club shop.
The Italy international left Napoli for Stamford Bridge this summer and it’s clearly a big deal for his family.
In this modern age we’ve grown accustomed to thinking footballers are soulless celebrities in the pockets of big corporations, but this video shows success still means a huge amount to some of them and their parents.
