David Luiz writes heart-warming post about a special fan

By  | 

David Luiz is an interesting character, isn’t he?

The Chelsea defender, known for his Sideshow Bob haircut and cheeky persona, returned to Stamford Bridge on transfer deadline day this season having left the club in 2014.

And there was one fan in particular who was clearly thrilled to see the Brazilian return, as Luiz explained on Instagram after the EFL Cup game against Leicester.

Great comeback lads! But I really want to say thank you, for this little boy in the pic! First time I saw him, he was running from the stadium until my hotel to say hello to me 5 years ago, and many others times until my home! He always was so respectful with me and many times he just want to say " congrats for the game and good night " , so last week after the game against Liverpool I was totally in shock, when I arrived at the hotel,I saw one guy running screaming my name and telling me to wait, and when I saw the ex little boy , now so big ,making the same action just to say to me, "we support u and the team, good night David" ! I just said tks God,to give me this job and opportunities to met people like this little boy,now a big guy! So, in Leicester the beautiful action was not my action to give him the shirt , the beautiful action was from him , to be there supporting us like always ! True Blue! Tks bro! God bless u and ur family #thebeautifulgame

A lovely story, and an example of the commitment it takes to earn a football shirt from a player these days.
