- Chelsea fans in Nigeria are already doing the unthinkable ahead of the Champions League final slated for Saturday night in Portugal
- The Blues face fellow English club Manchester City in the final of the competition which is billed to be explosive
- Two supporters of Chelsea have branded themselves and a Keke Napep in Blues’ colours ahead of the game
Chelsea fans in Nigeria have continued to take their excitement to a whole new level ahead of their Champions League final showdown against Manchester City.
The Blues go head-to-head in the final of the competition to be staged at the Stadio do Dragao in Portugal for a chance to win the coveted title.
Chelsea have won the competition once - having reached the final for a third time, while Manchester City are in the final for the first time in the club’s history.
Football fans are already excited ahead of the encounter, but Chelsea supporters have continued to do the unthinkable before the match.
Latest footage shows a man and a woman emerge from a Keke Napep on the streets of Lagos as they are clad in Blues' costume of Chelsea football club.
Hanging on the keke which had the inscription ‘Chief Agbale 1’ were two branded Chelsea flags as they continued to taunt passersby before the game.
@Tosan_Akin_ who posted the club on twitter wrote:
“Please don’t ask me why I hate Chelsea”.
A fan then replied:
“It will end in tears.”
“There is nothing to hate here, just appreciate their happiness and move on.”
The Nigerian internet space is already agog for the battle, but Chelsea fans in the most populous African country have taken their support to a whole new height.
They have stormed every possible social media platform with photos cows as they prepare for celebrations – of course, only if they win.
Nigerians, despite the hardship, are branded as “happiest places on earth” and making barbecue out of animal foods is very common in the country.
And in their bid to celebrate the Champions League glory after their final match against the Citizens, Chelsea fans have spent lavishly on cows as they further colour them in Blue ahead of the ‘party at night’.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that their Champions League final showdown against English rivals Chelsea will be a very tough one.
Pep Guardiola who is leading the Citizens to the final of the competition for the first time in their history is already speaking ahead of the showdown.
