Chelsea fans are no doubt over the bridge with their transfer ban and are firing all cylinders in the current transfer window.

The signings of Werner, Ziyech, Sarr and Thiago Silva leaves the London club fans excited for the next season. However, this cheeky video of a Blue mascot would warm the hearts of most Chelsea fans out there.

In February 2006, Chelsea hosted Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League and mascot hilariously pranked Steven Gerrard in the tunnel prior to kick-off.

Jake Nickless, now 20, was only five years of age when he cheekily decided to get one over then Liverpool skipper Gerrard in the Stamford Bridge tunnel.

After calling out Gerrard’s name and asking the England international for a handshake, Nickless – who had his hair dyed blue – immediately pulled his hand away to everyone’s amusement.
