A collection of Paulo Ferreira jokes after the retired Portuguese defender received Chelsea’s Special Recognition Award.
PLUS! MORE AWARDS NIGHT FUN: The best League Managers Association Awards jokes
On football’s biggest awards night, the London club held their own ceremony honouring the players and staff as fans eagerly awaited the results.
Many, it seems, were unaware that the 35-year-old was still at the club.
But after more than seven faithful years of service he was finally shown the appreciation he deserves.
A light-hearted commentary of Paulo Ferreira jokes accompanied the presentation:

Congrats Paulo Ferreira for winning the special recognition award. 4 seasons on the bench translating for the brazilians didn't go unnoticed
