Fiorentina's Federico Chiesa Celebrated His Goal Against SPAL With His Younger Brother

In a touching moment yesterday, Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa ran over to his brother after scoring in a 3-0 victory over SPAL.

The 20-year old notched his second goal of the Serie A season in the 56th minute and immediately set about sharing the special moment with his younger sibling, who is a ball boy.


With their father Enrico in attendance, the two hugged it out and it was really heartwarming stuff. Lorenzo Chiesa is 14-years old and is able to assume duties as a ball boy because he plays in the Viola's youth side.

Imagine the scenes if the two are teammates a few years down the line?! We're well up for seeing two Chiesas donning the purple shirts of Fiorentina.
