Chelsea Youngster Charlie Wakefield Surprises His Dad With a Jaguar Car For His Birthday

Chelsea Youngster Charlie Wakefield Surprises His Dad With a Jaguar Car For His Birthday

Charlie Wakefield is one of the most exciting prospects in Chelsea‘s youth set up right now, but the 18-year-old isn’t about to forget where he came from and who’s supported him along the way.

Wakefield’s dad celebrated his 50th birthday this week and in a touching gesture and as a massive thank you for all his support down the years, the right-back has surprised him with a Jaguar car.

The defender is currently a major part of the club’s U23s team but he’s yet to make an impact on the senior side at Stamford Bridge.

However, youngsters in the Premier League can still rake in a hefty salary, as Wakefield showed when he bought his dad a new car and posted a picture via his official Instagram account.

In the picture’s caption, the youngster tells how his father has never missed one of his games, no matter the distance he had to travel to watch his son play.

At least he can do it in comfort now eh, Charlie!

This picture says a lot. My dad turned 50 years old today and after 2 years of planning his surprise birthday present, the day finally came. I wouldn't of got as far as I have without this man, I owe him everything. To think he's not missed one of my football matches from the age I started playing, which was 8.. whether the game was round the corner, or 6 hours away, he'd scarifies anything or anyone, just to make sure he got to my games to support me, no matter what. To think of the miles he must of driven, especially in his second hand 03 plate Ford Focus… how it's survived so many long journeys I'll never know. He's always loved luxury cars, but never been able to get one, so to be able to buy him his dream Jaguar car for his 50th birthday, couldn't of worked out any better. Now he'll enjoy the long journeys up north 😂. He's watched my journey from the beginning, kept me humble, believed in me, and taught me everything I need to know over the years. He deserves everything and I can't thank him enough. Everyone I know loves him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Dad, and the man I've always looked up to. love you 💙 Also thank you to www.rivervaleleasing.co.uk & @nailard for arranging it all, really appreciate it. Quality service 🙌🏻
