Lots of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to react after Marcel Brands’ kind gesture to new signing Moise Kean.
The former PSV director managed to successfully negotiate an excellent deal with Juventus for the 19-year-old, which sees him join the Toffees in an initial £29m deal with no buyback clause implemented in the transfer.
In addition to that, Brands appears to have gone the extra mile in an attempt to make the Italy international feel at home on Merseyside.
He presented Kean with a shirt at his unveiling, but also had another jersey made up with ‘Mami’ on the back for the forward’s mother, who was beside him on his big day.
Thogden challenged himself to DM 100 footballers on Instagram. Find out who replied in the video below…
The gesture was a particularly heartwarming one from Brands, and will presumably have gone a long way with Kean and his mother – the teenager suffered a tough time in Italy due to racist abuse from the stands and a lack of backing from teammates such as Leonardo Bonucci.
Let’s see how the Everton fans on Twitter reacted to the lovely moment…
I’ll be honest and admit I had a lump in my throat when this happened… https://t.co/9vJYKEGWs7

Those players would not be coming to Everton without his input. Players instantly respect him. We’ve needed him for so long mate. NSNO.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Brands could possibly be our most important ‘signing’ in the last two years. The man oozes class.
