Chelsea star Jorginho forced to have beard shaved off after agreeing to bet earlier in season if he won Champions League

CHELSEA midfielder Jorginho has stuck true to his word after having his beard shaved after lifting the Champions League trophy.

The Brazilian-born Italy international, 29, made a bet with TNT Sports journalist Fred Caldeira after the quarter-final victory against Porto.

The terms were that Caldeira would be able to remove most of Jorginho's facial hair if Chelsea won the European Cup.

And the former Napoli midfielder would be able to shave off the reporter's moustache.

Both men were left fresh-faced following the Blues' 1-0 win against Manchester City with an electric shaver pulled out during the pair's post-match interview.

Jorginho was first up as he had his beard removed, before Caldeira had his moustache taken off by the ex-Hellas Verona ace.

Both men then were left shocked by their new appearance as they looked at themselves in a phone camera.

Social media was loving the incident, as one fan tweeted: "Jorginho looks cold without beard and with a beard."

Another commented: "Jorginho without the beard looks like Mount."

A third added: "Most glorious beard shave ever!"

Meanwhile one simply stated: "This is wholesome content right here."

In another interview with Sky Italia, Jorginho revealed how he considered quitting football at the age of 17, before his parents convinced him to pursue his dream.

He said: "I think about my past, especially when we get to these games.

"I think about everything I’ve gone through during my life and my career.

“My hometown in Brazil, my family, everything. It’s like watching the movie of your life, you remember everything and it’s incredible.

“I remember I wanted to quit when I was 17, but my mother and my dad didn’t let me do it. I am proud of what they did, I can only thank them.”
