Mateo Kovacic scored his first ever Chelsea goal in November as he scored in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Valencia in the UEFA Champions League.
Carlos Soler had put Valencia in front on the 40th minute, but Kovacic scored the equaliser a minute later.
Kovacic had a weird celebration to the goal with a silly gesture, and he has now explained that the celebration were for his nieces.
“I’ve had the celebration prepared for a while because I didn’t score last season!” Kovacic joked.
“It’s actually for my nieces. I have two nieces, one of which has Down’s Syndrome, and they do that [hand action] with me a lot. I love her a lot and the celebration was for them.
“It’s nice when you score and you can celebrate with the family. They have waited a long time but now I hope I can continue like that.”
