Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes comprehends that tenacity is vital for triumph in sports. The Portuguese midfielder astonished a supporter who persistently messaged him for 300 uninterrupted days by vowing to gift a signed jersey during a video conversation.
Fernandes, in February, mentioned on Twitter, “I observed your tweets (to me) for approximately 280 days and decided that if he (attains) 300 days, I will send him a shirt!” He was quoting the fan’s desire for the number 300 on the autographed jersey.
Remarkably, a month and a half later, the Portugal international took his generosity a step further and chose to personally present the fan with the signed shirt during a video call.
In a video shared on his social media accounts, Fernandes expressed, “I value all the support you’ve provided me, undoubtedly for the club as well, and that’s why I wish to give you my shirt.”
“I’m at a loss for words, Bruno, I’m overjoyed,” articulated the amazed enthusiast upon receiving the call.
The astonished fan could soon don the jersey to a match at Old Trafford, as Fernandes has extended an invitation.
“One day, I’ll be present. I yearn to witness you representing us for numerous years ahead; I should be able to observe your performance there,” conveyed the supporter.
Presently occupying the third position in the Premier League with 50 points, United is slated to face off against fifth-placed Newcastle United on Sunday.
