Who: Chelsea fan, Glecy Buntelle Tan, 26

Why do you support Chelsea?

Glecy: That's a question I get all the time since I started supporting Chelsea nine years ago. Back then the Blues were not doing very well in the league and were far off from breaking into the top four. But talented players such as Gianfranco Zola and Roberto Di Matteo were a joy to watch and it was love at first sight.

How long have you been supporting the team?

Glecy: I have been a Chelsea supporter for nine years. That's nearly a decade! I actually supported the club before Roman Abramovich took over. It's been a long journey supporting the Blues but it's been all worth it after finally seeing them win the Champions League!

When and where was the photos with Florent Malouda taken?

Glecy: When I heard that Chelsea were heading to Bangkok for a pre-season tour in 2011, I immediately blocked out the dates on my calendar and booked the air tickets. That is to fulfill my dream of seeing my favourite player Florent Malouda in person and I got more than what I wished for as I managed to take a picture with him at the press conference of the tour!

What did you say to him during the photo-taking?

Glecy: To be quite honest I was shell-shocked when I saw him face to face at such close proximity! But I did say conjure up some courage to tell him that he is my favourite player and that I hope he stays at Chelsea forever.
