Reblog if you’d wear your favourite goalkeeper’s jersey with pride.
This is to prove a point.
I mentioned wanting a Buffon jersey, and my dad turned to me and went, “Why would you wear a goalkeeper jersey? Nobody cares about goalkeepers. It’s just stupid.”
I, myself, am a goalkeeper as well. And we don’t get enough appreciation, whether on lower levels, or professionally. If I made it professionally and someone wore my jersey, I’d be absolutely THRILLED.
I just don’t see why supporting your favourite player by wearing their jersey is any different when they’re goalkeepers.
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who reblogged this and shared their opinion. I wound up getting a Buffon jersey for Christmas because my parents realized they were wrong and there’s nothing wrong with wearing a goalkeeper jersey, judging by everyone’s reaction to this. 😂❤
