This kid knew exactly what he was doing
In Italian, the word chiesa means church. But when a teacher asked their class to draw a picture of a church as part of a lesson on religious buildings, six-year-old Vittorio had a different Chiesa in mind—Fiorentina’s 19-year-old striker Federico Chiesa. So that’s who he drew. A happy looking figure wearing Fiorentina purple and orange boots.
Upon seeing his son’s work (presumably at a hastily arranged parent-teacher conference), Vittorio’s father—a man who has clearly instilled his own priorities into children—knew what to do.
From Football Italia:
His father, Dario, put the image on social media and it went viral.
It came to the attention of Fiorentina and they invited Vittorio and his father to the training ground to visit the Viola squad.
This includes 19-year-old midfielder Chiesa, who has three goals and two assists in 19 competitive games this season.
And that’s how you get to meet your favorite team. Easy as that. This family is brilliant.
