The American-born wife of new Everton signing Asmir Begovic, Nicolle, has caused delight on social media following confirmation of her husband’s Goodison Park switch.
The Tennessee-born influencer took to social media to share a video of her riding her horse in full Evertonian garb in a nod to Begovic’s move.
Her horse – named Jerry – ‘felt like celebrating’ the move along with Nicolle, with the clip posted initially on Instagram showing Begovic cantering and galloping around a private arena.
