Stoke City's Jese vows to 'run more, score more goals' for ill baby son

Things got testy between Mark Hughes and Jose Mourinho on the touchline during and after the Man United-Stoke City clash.

Jese Rodriguez has said he will "run more and score more goals" for his baby son, who is being treated in hospital following complications arising from his premature birth earlier this summer.

Jese, who joined Stoke City on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain last month, posted a photograph on Instagram of himself holding son Nyan at a hospital in Gran Canaria.

The player, who travels to Spain to visit his son on his days off, wrote: "You are the best thing that could have happened.

"Each day by your side I learn from you, from your strength, your will, your attitude to not give up, your tenderness, the way you suffer, and little by little you are coming out of this...

Si el mundo piensa que no eres lo suficientemente bueno, es MENTIRA. Eres lo mejor que le ha podido pasar. Cada día a tu lado aprendo de ti, tú fuerza , tus ganas , tu actitud de no rendirte , tú ternura , tú seriedad para lo pequeñito que eres , tú forma de sufrir y poco a poco vas saliendo adelante , en fin muchas cosas que me llenan mi corazón dentro de lo malo de la situación, aún así siempre me darás felicidad gracias NYAN👶❤️Yo voy a correr más ,a meter muchos goles y a todo lo que puede hacer un padre solamente por ver a sus hijos en casa sin parar de sonreir. Voy hacer eso y más mi GUERRERO 💪🏼🙏🏼 siempre contigo. Todo va a salir bien, y estaré a tu lado siempre ❤️ Gracias a mi bebé @aurah.ruiz por ser tan valiente con todo lo que estás pasando, yo siempre seguire contigo 😍👪 les amo mucho siempre en mi corazón pase lo que pase 🙏🏼 aveces no todo comienzo bebe tiene buena felicidad al ser mamá por primera vez es difícil pero si te prometo que no te fallare y estaré en todas contigo y con mis hijos ❤️ se merecen todo ❤

"There are many things that fill my heart and, considering the negative of the situation, you still give me happiness.

"I will run more, score more goals and do everything a father can do to see his children at home not stop smiling.

"Everything will go well, and I will always be by your side."

Jese, who cost PSG almost £22 million last summer, has scored one goal in three league starts for Stoke.
