Last year, Texans defensive end and bonafide Chelsea FC fan J.J. Watt received a wonderful gift in the mail – a custom Chelsea shirt with his name and number on the back.
Opened up a gift from @chelseafc when I got home from workout. Class act & very much appreciated. #GoBlues pic.twitter.com/fzPGIExSRI

The gift must have meant a lot to Watt as he even brought his Chelsea jersey with him when he flew out to London to watch Chelsea earlier this year.

So, given that, it’s not a huge surprise to learn that Watt recently sent a signed jersey of his own across the pond. The soccer team had a bewildered-looking Eden Hazard pose with the shirt in order to thank Watt for his gift on Twitter on Thursday.
Hey @JJWatt, @hazardeden10 says thank you for the shirt! #CFCTour pic.twitter.com/P1PzJ4sAfO

Hilariously, Hazard’s slightly confused expression didn’t escape Watt.
"Whose jersey is this? Why am I holding it?" Haha love ya @hazardeden10 https://t.co/w93ASwwQOr
