                            😳

                            I’m wondering if 🔥 is also a Leeds fan because that might explain his need to take something seriously 🤣

                            PS. I’ve made a note no Spanish questions 😁

                              He's a Chelsea fan supposedly but we think he secretly supports Leeds. We guessed when he ran round the room when we stayed up .🤣🤣🤣
