Former Arsenal Fan Names Baby ‘Antonio Moses' In Ebonyi
Chelsea is becoming culturally significant in Nigeria. He stayed with Arsenal for 5 unproductive years and decided to move to the Blue corner of London.
Some people's love for football has driven them to name their children after the club's stars following their recent win of the English Premiere League.
In the aftermath of Chelsea' EPL victory, a die-hard fan in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state, has named his newly-delivered baby-boy Antonio Moses.
The fan, Mathew Irondu, a Construction Engineer said 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.
He said the duo among other members of the team 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".
On Friday night Chelsea defeated West Bromwich Albion 1-0 to win the league title with two matches to go.
