Moise Kean’s Mother Recalls Heartwarming Story of Juventus Starlet Signing for La Vecchia Signora

​Moise Kean’s mother has opened up about the early life of the Italian wonderkid, describing his birth as a “miracle.”

The 19-year-old has long been tipped for stardom and recently netted his first goal for Italy in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Finland, propelling himself into the limelight.

In an interview with ​Tuttosport, Isabelle Kean revealed she used to call her son Moses, thanks to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding his birth. She said: “His birth was a miracle. The doctors told me that I could not have other children, I cried and prayed. Giovanni [Moise’s older brother] also asked me for a little brother. 

“One night I dreamed of Moses. He came to help me and after four months I was pregnant again.”

She then went on to discuss Kean’s reaction to signing his first senior contract with ​Juventus, revealing that he helped save her from a life of challenging, low-paying work.

She said: “He called me at half past five at night, I was going to work in Nizza Monferrato. I got scared, I thought something had happened to him. 

“Instead he says to me ‘mum, there’s a surprise for you’. I replied ‘don’t tell me you didn’t sign with Juventus’. And he said ‘no, I signed and you don’t have to work anymore, you can come to live in Turin with me’.”

Isabelle also revealed that her son called her after scoring on Saturday, adding: “He was happy, very happy. He called me, still dazed by the debut goal. What did I tell him? That was very great, to continue like this, to always listen to the coach and the his teammates.

“For a mother it is a great satisfaction to see that he has made it, that he has reached such high levels, I would never have imagined it, especially thinking about where we have come from”.
