Obi Cubana Meets With Chelsea Star Shortly After Blues Defeated Southampton 3-1
- Obi Cubana met with the out-of-favour Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi when the Nigerian socialite visited the Stamford Bridge
- The Nigerian celebrity was in the Stamford Bridge stands to cheer the Blues to victory in their Premier League game over Southampton
- Photo shows Obi Cubana and Hudson-Odoi together outside the stadium moments after the intense encounter ended
Nigerian socialite Obi Cubana was at the Stamford Bridge to cheer Chelsea to victory in the Blues 3-1 home win over Southampton in the Premier League.
Obi Cubana has been a regular face with footballers as he was earlier seen with former Chelsea star Tammy Abraham during one of his recent trips to London.
Abraham who left Premier League club Chelsea to join Jose Mourinho at Italian side Roma has his roots traced back to Nigeria.
But on his visit to London this time around, Obi Cubana was spotted in a photo with Callum Hudson-Odoi who was not in Chelsea's team list for the game against the Saints.
Odoi has fallen down the pecking order under manager Thomas Tuchel and reports suggest he could even dump England to play for his fatherland Ghana.
He is the younger brother of Ghana's non-League striker Bradley Hudson-Odoi and the second son of former Hearts of Oak midfielder Bismark Odoi.
The Blues ran riot against the Saints on Saturday following a 3-1 win courtesy goals from Trevoh Chalobah, Timo Werner and Ben Chillwell as Ward-Prowse got a goal for the visitors.
Fans cheered the Chelsea players as they claimed all three points to go top of the Premier League table, with Obi Cubana also applauding the Blues from the stands.
He wrote on Instagram:
“Ok, lemme confess! I was a staunch Chelsea fan before before. I think I’m back home.”
Thomas Tuchel reacts to win over Southampton
Meanwhile, speaking after the game, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel acknowledged that it was a very tough encounter. He told the BBC:
"It was deserved but it was a long way to go [to get it]. I liked the game, it was very entertaining with two intense sides.
“I liked the energy and the attitude. In the end we finally got the result right which is always the challenge and the target. It was a late one but a deserved one."
Arsenal draw away at Brighton
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Arsenal extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four games after an entertaining 0-0 draw against a wasteful Brighton and Hove Albion side.
Graham Potter’s side have been the surprise packages this season, and they thoroughly dominated possession and chances created, but were guilty of bluntness in front of goal.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang provided Arsenal’s best chance in the game as his first-half effort came off the post, while Shane Duffy squandered Brighton’s chance late in the game.
