Reasons behind Christopher Nkunku’s Balloon celebrations

Christopher Nkunku performed his trademark balloon celebration after scoring in Chelsea’s win over Brighton. The Frenchman pulled a blue balloon out of his sock, inflated it, stretched out his arms, and looked to the sky.

The first instance of this unique celebration was witnessed during a Leipzig victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2022 Champions League.

Fans have always been intrigued and puzzled, wondering about the significance of the balloon celebration.

The explanation is a fairly simple one, as Nkunku revealed after first performing it. “The balloon was for my son,” Nkunku said. “He likes balloons.”

Injuries to both his knee and hamstring have limited Christopher Nkunku to 13 appearances in all competitions, with just 10 in the league.

However Nkunku has shown enough in his few outings to suggest that he could be an important asset for Mauricio Pochettino next season and beyond.

Chelsea’s win puts them on the brink of a sixth-place finish in the Premier League, which would be good enough to secure qualification for next year’s Europa League.

Chelsea are one of the form teams in the Premier League, with only Arsenal and Manchester City having picked up more points than the Stamford Bridge club over the last 15 matches.
