David Luiz surprises young supporter

One young Chelsea fan enjoyed an afternoon he will never forget when he attended Saturday’s game against Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge - and went home with a special gift from one of his heroes.

Jude Allen, aged eight, was invited along to the game by the Chelsea Foundation and after watching the Blues put five goals past Huddersfield, he was given the opportunity to meet the players.

Jude, who was accompanied by Kellie Grieves, and Jamie and Lola Payne, had been due to attend our home fixture against Newcastle last month, but after falling ill on the eve of the match, the youngster was unable to make the trip.

That prompted David Luiz to record the youngster a special message, where the Brazilian explained he would be looking forward to seeing him once he was back on his feet and able to come along to a match at Stamford Bridge.
 

The moment arrived on Saturday and David Luiz, who put the seal on our 5-0 victory with a late header, emerged from the dressing room to surprise Jude, chatting and joking with the young fan before presenting him with a Chelsea shirt!

The smile on Jude's face, which you can see in the video above, told its own story!

It was a special, heart-warming moment, and one young Jude is unlikely to forget in a hurry!
