Chelsea ace Mateo Kovacic rinsed by team-mates over ‘big head’


Mateo Kovacic received some hilarious ribbing from his Chelsea team-mates after he posted a snap celebrating the Blues’ fifth consecutive win.

Frank Lampard’s side collected three points against Newcastle on Saturday thanks to Marcos Alonso’s goal.

Kovavcic, who replaced Ross Barkley in the 43rd minute at Stamford Bridge, posted about Chelsea‘s hard work paying off.

“Number 5 in a row,” he wrote followed by a muscle-flexing emoji.

“Hard work always gets you there. Let’s go Blues @ChelseaFC,” accompanied by a blue heart emoji.

And while the image of the former Real Madrid midfielder received almost 85,000 likes, it also attracted some mysterious comments.

Fellow Chelsea stars Jorginho, Willian, Emerson Palmieiri all added the same comment.

“Cabeca de j…,” they all wrote, with plenty of laughing/crying emojis.

“Cabeça de jaca” is Portuguese and translates as “head of a jackfruit” in English.

So it transpires that the trio of Brazilians are mocking Kovacic for the large size of his head.

“So Kovacic is basically known as fat head lol,” commented one Chelsea fan after the revelation.

“Kovacic understands Portuguese too? Doesn’t he speak like 4 languages?” asked another Blues supporter.

Another replied: “Croatian, Italian, German, Spanish and English as far as I know – probably doesn’t speak Portuguese but understands the joke.”

“I know it’s just social media but I love seeing the players joke around with each other. So positive,” commented a fourth.

“Squad morale seems really good even when we were going through a rough patch,” another agreed.

Lampard paid tribute to the Croatia international after the win over Newcastle took Chelsea fourth in the table.

He said: “We saw the spirit and energy of the team in the second half. We just need to keep picking up the wins and take nothing for granted.

“We had a problem in the game, but solved it. Kovacic was outstanding. I am pleased, we have to play like that. We got our way in the end.”
