Dominik Szoboszlai’s girlfriend Fanni Gecsek likes the image of a fan trolling Romeo Lavia and claiming he was “playing for money” after turning down Liverpool and Chelsea… although the £58million midfielder has yet to play for the Blues
- Dominik Szoboszlai has had an excellent start to his Liverpool career
- However, Romeo Lavia is yet to start for Chelsea after snubbing the Reds
- Szoboszlai’s partner liked a post in which he trolled Lavia and claimed he was “playing for money.”
Dominik Szoboszlai’s girlfriend Fanni Gecsek has apparently taken a dig at Romeo Lavia after she reportedly liked a post in which she mocked him following his difficult start to life at Chelsea – after he stopped Liverpool from playing for the Blues.
Lavia appeared certain to join the Reds this summer before turning down a move to Jurgen Klopp’s team in favor of Chelsea, who he signed for in a £58million deal from Southampton.
However, the 19-year-old is yet to feature for Chelsea as he struggles with his fitness after barely playing or training for the Saints while his future was uncertain – and he has now suffered an ankle injury in training that made his problems even worse.
Meanwhile, Szoboszlai, who joined Liverpool from RB Leipzig for £60m, got off to a confident start at Anfield, starting the club’s first four games and making a real impression by staring in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa scored a great goal.
Lavia’s problems were mocked by a fan who created a photo collage of Lavia sitting frustrated on the bench next to Szoboszlai, who was celebrating for Liverpool.

The Liverpool fan’s post in question mocked Lavia for “playing for money” while claiming Szoboszlai was “playing for passion” after his great start at Liverpool.

On Lavia’s picture, the fan wrote “playing for money,” while Szoboszlai’s photo said “playing for passion.” Lavia reportedly earns around £100,000 a week at Stamford Bridge.
Keen-eyed fans noticed that Szoboszlai’s girlfriend Gecsek was among the names who liked the post, while Liverpool fans reveled in the success of their new purchase – and the plight of the player who rejected it.
Gecsek, 21, has been in a relationship with Szoboszlai since 2020 and is known as an aspiring tennis player as a teenager and, more recently, as a model – she regularly poses in glamorous photos that she uploads to her Instagram account.
She also shared many photos with Szoboszlai, including one of the beaming couple at the DFB Cup, which he won with Leipzig last season.

Lavia’s rejection from Liverpool became the second player to opt for a move to Chelsea this summer after Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo also chose Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Liverpool had rejected three offers for Lavia, who Mail Sport later revealed was preferring a move to west London.
Lavia’s injury was scheduled to be evaluated on Friday after he passed out following an ankle challenge during a training session on Thursday.
This adds to the difficulties Chelsea have had in the gym this season – having already lost Wesley Fofana, Mhkailo Mudryk, Reece James, Benoit Badiashille, Christopher Nkunku and Carney Chukwuemeka to injury.
Previously, Chelsea coach Pochettino had spoken about Lavia’s fitness issues and said he was not ready for minutes so far this season.
“Lavia No [not ready to start].’ he said before the 3-0 Premier League win over Luton Town last month.
Chelsea coach Mauricio Pochettino urged caution against Lavia, saying he was not ready for regular minutes
“He needs a few weeks to be ready to join the team.” He’s working on catching up with his teammates.
“We have to wait a few weeks for Romeo.” He didn’t have enough minutes in pre-season.
“I don’t think I would ask him to start a game after the minutes he’s had and everything that’s happening.”
“In situations like this you think back to yourself as a 19-year-old.” How would you deal with that? He was great, some days a lot better than others, but there was so much noise and he’s a really top lad and really top player.
“Romeo is getting fitter and has been training really well.”
