So I was tagged in this project: Seeing how shitty 2016 has been, a few people and I thought that we could have a nice project to end this dreadful year. So, regardless of his football prowess, awards, titles and records, could you present a player that you think has done (not necessarily just in 2016) something good (it can be for the community, the history of his team,…) Don’t hesitate to tag people to encourage them to do it! (thank you florgi @xavimascheranos ).
and I thought of this:
A kid named Elias traveled from a small town to Capital Federal (Buenos Aires) to meet River Plate’s players. He did, and a few of them signed his jersey, but in the middle of the chaos of all the people wanting to get the attention of the players, his jersey disappeared (someone stole it).
The man who filmed this says he and Elias (who was crying now) tried to find the jersey, and meanwhile, the man asked more players to take pics with the kid so he could stop crying, but Elias was still sad.
Then, Andrés D’alessandro (River player) arrived and saw him crying, asked the kid what happened, and this happened.
I thought it was such a nice and genuine gesture, I was so proud of him.
