Mateo Kovacic shares touching reason for his 'silly hand' celebration

Following his "silly hand" celebration after scoring against Valencia and Everton, Mateo Kovacic has revealed that family was the reason for his celebration. 

Kovacic broke his goal drought that had lasted for over 1000 days with his last goal coming in the 2-3 loss to Barcelona back in 2017 while he was still with Real Madrid.

The Chelsea midfielder first netted in the 2-2 draw against Valencia in the Champions League and followed that up with another against Everton as he celebrated both goals with a "silly hand" celebration.

In an interview with the club's official portal, Kovacic revealed the reason behind his celebration, "I’ve had the celebration prepared for a while because I didn’t score last season!

"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."
