Chelsea took to Twitter to wish former defender Alex a happy birthday. It seems the tweet was full of Chelsea fans who wished the Brazilian well, after his eight long years at the club.

Chelsea signed Alex for a fee of £5 million from Brazilian club Santos, back in the summer of 2004. Alex enjoyed a good five-year career at Stamford Bridge, winning one Premier League title and two FA Cups during his stint.
