Rihanna is a “Gobbo” and Juventus just gained a million more fans because of her.
Just when we thought that Rihanna is a PSG fan, she came out strong for Italian giants Juventus. It’s safe to say that she is a “I gobbi” which is the Italian term given to supporters of the Juventus football club, of which Rihanna is a big fan. Founded in 1897 in the Italian town of Turin, the club has won almost every European league title imaginable and holds 35 official league titles, 13 Coppa Italia titles, and 8 Supercoppa Italiana titles in its trophy cabinet.
The team is currently taking part in the Champions League, and “the only girl in the world” was present at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. The boys in black and white stripes took on Atletico Madrid in the home game, which ended 1-0 to the Italians. This is what she came for!
Proving what a massive fan she is, the “Love on the Brain” singer was gifted her very own football jersey, making her one of the boys. Emblazoned on the back of the signature striped top was her nickname Riri and the number 20 to reflect her date of birth in February.
“Enjoy the game, @rihanna!” the club’s official Twitter account wrote alongside pictures of the star. It also included a video of the 31-year-old arriving at the home stadium with her brother in tow. He was not left out as he was given his own jersey that included the pair’s last name, Fenty.
