“I don’t know if it is right to celebrate it now” – Romeo Lavia now makes a joke with Chelsea fans on Instagram today
Romeo Lavia, the new Chelsea midfielder, playfully engaged with Chelsea supporters on social media by sharing a throwback moment from his career on Instagram. He posted a video of his first goal for Southampton, which he scored a year ago against Chelsea.
In a somewhat ironic twist, that game last August could have potentially been Lavia’s final match for Southampton. Shortly after joining from Manchester City, reports emerged that Chelsea was interested in signing him for a fee similar to what they had just paid for him.
Although this transfer didn’t materialize, Lavia had a successful season with Southampton, despite the club’s relegation.
Lavia was a highly sought-after player, with top Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea vying for his signature, just like they did for Moises Caicedo. Ultimately, both players ended up at Stamford Bridge.
Lavia has begun building a connection with Chelsea fans by playfully sharing his past goal against Chelsea on Instagram. Supporters are eagerly anticipating his debut for the club.
