PAOK player celebrates goal with his son after he was bullied in school

Fernando Varela

PAOK beat Larissa 3-0 on Monday evening.

PAOK’s second goal was scored by former Steaua Bucharest defender, Fernando Varela.

The 30 year old headed home from Dimitros Pelkas’ corner in the 40th minute of the match. He then proceeded to run off the pitch and celebrate with his son who had been suffering from bullying at school.

Why was he bullied?

Varela’s son was taunted by his class mates due to his father’s own goal which came in a match last season against Olympiacos.

Varela had actually scored his first goal for PAOK earlier in the match but scored a disastrous own goal in the 25th minute. Olympiacos went on to win the game 2-1 with Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic scoring a late late winner deep into added time.

The tweet above reads:

PAOK defender Fernando Varela, forgave himself by celebrating his goal with his son.

Varela’s son was ill-treated by his father because his father scored his own goal in the Olympiacos match at the beginning of the season.

Best celebration ever?

Varela’s celebration surely ranks up there with the best celebrations of all time.

Last season, Lionel Messi celebrated with a nice gesture (pictured below). The Argentinian was making a symbol to raise awareness for children suffering with cancer.
