Fans spot Enzo Fernandez’s personalised necklace as he arrives at Chelsea’s game

Fans couldn’t hide their fascination with Enzo Fernandez’s personalised necklace ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Everton on Saturday afternoon.

The 22-year-old midfielder has added a touch of class to Chelsea’s midfield since arriving for a record British transfer fee of £107million in January. Part of the reason why the Blues had to splash such a heavy sum was his role in guiding Argentina to a World Cup triumph in December.

Fernandez became a household name for his impressive performances in Qatar. And he appears to be in no hurry to forget the tournament which ended a 36-year drought for the football-mad nation.

The official Chelsea social media account shared a picture of the Argentine arriving at Stamford Bridge ahead of the Toffees clash. Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed Fernandez wearing what appeared to be a gold chain.

But a closer look showed the pendant to be a replica of the iconic World Cup trophy, along with a ball attached to it.

How highly do you rate Enzo Fernandez? Let us know in the comments section.

One Twitter user wrote: “I love that necklace and may he use it as motivation to get better and better everyday.”

Another Chelsea fan gushed: “We have a world cup winning player.”

A third commented: “That’s why he’s the best midfielder in the world,” while a fourth added: “This is cold.”

Fernandez played all seven of Argentina’s World Cup matches in Qatar, starting the crucial final five games. His sole goal of the tournament, an 87th minute wonder-strike against Mexico, came in a game which is widely considered to be the moment where Argentina’s fortunes changed.

The central-midfielder was also able to pick up the World Cup's Best Young Player award, while teammates Lionel Messi and Emi Martinez were awarded the Golden Ball and Golden Glove respectively.
