Hazard Presents Signed Jersey to Mrs Akufo-Addo
Chelsea attacking midfielder, Eden Hazard, has presented a signed Chelsea jersey to Ghana’s First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo.
The First Lady, who disclosed this in a tweet, described the gift as “one of the best surprises” she has had so far in the year.
“I believe one of the best surprises I have had so far this year, is receiving a personally signed replica jersey, by one of the world’s best players, Eden Hazard. A Chelsea football player, Belgian international and face of Nike Sports. Thank you so much @hazardeden10,” Mrs Akufo-Addo’s tweet said.
Mrs Akufo-Addo is believed to be a fan of the blues.
Hazard is often ranked by coaches, colleagues and commentators, as one of the best players in the world.
He joined French side Lille as a professional in 2007 before joining Chelsea in the English Premier League for a transfer fee of £32 million in 2012.
Chelsea has a huge following in Ghana, largely due to the exploits of Ghana international Micheal Essien who played for the English club.
Chelsea won the English Premier League title two season’s ago but have struggled this term and are currently out of the Top Four with only 3 games to end the season.
They are however in the FA Cup final and will meet Manchester United later this month.
