The Story Behind Moise Kean Making His Mum Quit Her Job Is Wonderful
Moise Kean has hit the headlines this week after the Juventus forward received racist abuse from Cagliari fans at the Sardegna Arena.
The 19-year-old scored the second in the 2-0 win, and celebrated in front of the Cagliari ultras with his arms outstretched.
It may have prompted the Sardegna faithful to start chanting even louder, but many supported the striker for his reaction.
Many discovered Moise Kean's talents for the first time on Tuesday night, but the youngster has been tipped for big things since he penned a youth conduct at Juventus in 2010.

He became the first player born in 2000 to feature in Serie A when he came on in the 84th minute against Pescara, and has since impressed on a number of occasions under Massimiliano Allegri.
It has been an incredibly fast rise to the top for the lad, but somebody who has continued to show her faith in Kean's ability is his mother, Isabelle.
Ahead of Juventus clash against Cagliari this week, she spoke to Tuttosport about the moment he changed her life and it's lovely, to be honest:
"We had little money. Then one day Moise calls me on my way to work at 5:30 AM and says 'Mom, I've a surprise'," she said.
"I told him 'No, don't tell me you didn't sign with Juve.'
"He replied 'I did and starting today you will quit your job and live with me in Turin'."

Isabelle Kean also said that he used to call her son Moses thanks to his "miracle" birth:
"His birth was a miracle. The doctors told me that I could not have other children, I cried and prayed. Giovanni [Moise's older brother] also asked me for a little brother.
"One night I dreamed of Moses. He came to help me and after four months I was pregnant again."
