Jesus Christ plays for Chelsea, say one in five London children

Published 3 Comments

Some of the football played at Stamford Bridge this season certainly has been divine, which perhaps explains why one in five children in London believe Jose Mourinho's squad includes a certain Jesus Christ.

According to The Independent, 200 kids in a Brent Cross Shopping Centre believe Jesus Christ is not the Son of God, but instead a member of Mourinho's all-conquering Chelsea team.

The holy trinity of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian have been pulling the strings at Stamford Bridge this season, while the Champions League remains Mourinho's ultimate holy grail. And while Didier Drogba has resurrected his Chelsea career in his second coming at the Bridge, we think Jesus Navas is the only high profile Jesus in the Premier League this term.

When asked as part of a survey, Who is Jesus Christ? a) A footballer for Chelsea b) Son of God c) TV presenter d) X Factor contestant or e) An astronaut, surprisingly 20 per cent of the 1,000 respondents answered a).

Diego Costa has been something of a 'saviour' for a Chelsea team that struggled in front of goal last season, and we're not sure Mourinho would be entirely on board with a second deity, after himself, in west London.

And that's not even addressing the ego problem. Footballers these days are fragile creatures, their egos need to be carefully nurtured - imagine if one of them could perform miracles as well!

Of course, we joke. So what have we learned?

Jesus Christ does not play for Chelsea, of that much we're certain. Anything beyond that, I'm not sure anymore.

This bombshell has been questioning things. RE lessons are no longer the rigorous intellectual seminars of my day (I'm serious!), either that or children in Brent Cross are a mischievous bunch.
