Mother’s Day is this Sunday in the United States but the holiday was last weekend in Spain and Valencia CF celebrated in a special way.

Valencia players wore the maiden name of their mothers on the back of their jerseys in the club’s 0-2 loss to Villarreal during La Liga matchday 36 last Sunday.

Defender Guilherme Siqueira was in his #6 jersey but with his mom’s name S Madalena (image above).

The event was in conjunction with UN Women with a goal to ‘recognize the role of women in football and society generally.’
