Football is an exciting sport and in fact, the most famous sport in the whole world. We have all in one way or the other have that one favorite club we supports during our childhood. It can be influenced through our parent, our childhood friends or even in our schools then. 

Like me, I have been supporting Chelsea since I was a small boy, that has been because I was surrounded then by friends who loves Chelsea as a team. You tends to support the club that winning and that love, I have been nurturing from those days.

It is also because of legends that were in the club then, like..... Drogba, Lampard and so on. 

This same thing also exists among various players in various football leagues across the world.

He once said, "When I was supporting them, Everton seems to be fighting against relegation, I seems to remember there were lots of tears". The above words by him seems to depict his high passion for his childhood team, Everton, but he ends up spending majority of his football career in Liverpool. He is part of the squad that won the current season Premier League with Liverpool.
