Famara Diédhiou dedicated his goal away at Stoke City to his newborn son.
Diédhiou ended 2018 by welcoming his second son to the world, before he opened the scoring against Stoke on New Year’s Day.
“Yes he was born just days ago. I’m very happy, I have two boys now and it’s unbelievable. The goal is for him, of course,” Diédhiou began his post-match interview.
His downward header from Jack Hunt’s cross gave City a half-time lead, before Callum O’Dowda’s late strike doubled City’s advantage. The Potters looked to attack in front of their own fans but City stood up to the test with a solid defensive showing.
Diédhiou said: “It was an unbelievable delivery from Jack. I’ve tried to head his ball in the box. We are playing with confidence so let’s just keep going. It wasn’t easy because we were away at Stoke and they have some good players. We wanted to win the game but it wasn’t easy.
And the striker added his delight after seeing teammates and club captain Bailey Wright return to the pitch for the first time in eight months.
Wright replaced Adam Webster in the first half, helping City to their ninth clean sheet of the campaign.
Diédhiou continued: “I’m very happy. He’s a key player, a leader, a captain, and when he came on he did a great job. I am very happy for him.
“And thank you to the fans, they were very important for us!”
