Houston Texans defensive end, JJ Watt may be a football star in the NFL but the star pass rusher is apparently also a fan of the European version of football.

Watt posted a picture on twitter showing a Chelsea FC shirt with 'Watt 99' on the back, the defensive end included the message:

"Opened up a gift from @chelseafc when I got home from workout. Class act & very much appreciated. #GoBlues"

Watt has spent time in the UK during NFL offseasons as part of his workout regimen and has apparently become a fan of the West London side.

Watt has also tweeted his support of Jose Mourinho's side earlier this year wearing a yellow t-shirt embossed with the lion logo of Chelsea.

The two-time Pro-Bowler has gained fans in the NFL  ever since he was drafted in 2011 and recorded a career-high 15 sacks in 2013, despite the Houston Texans finishing with the worst record in the league.

Watt will be hoping for a better season by the Texans in 2014 and maybe even a trophy or two for his beloved Chelsea.
