I guess kids don’t get how filthy rich athletes are . . .
A 9-year-old in Huddersfield, England named Adam Bhana went to a soccer match with his dad last Saturday. Huddersfield played Manchester United and BEAT them for the first time in 65 years. (Huddersfield is in northern England, just outside Leeds.)
At some point during the match, Adam found a five-pound note on the ground, worth about $6.50. So he asked the people around him if they dropped it, and they said no. Then he told his dad they couldn’t possibly keep it, because it wasn’t theirs.
So instead, he decided to mail it to his FAVORITE PLAYER . . . a guy on Huddersfield named Aaron Mooy who was named MVP of the game.
He initially wanted to send it to the manager, so he could get Cristiano Ronaldo on the team and put it toward his salary. Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid. His salary is about $60 million a year.
But he decided Mooy deserved it more. So he wrote the manager a letter . . . included the money . . . and asked him to give it to Mooy for playing so well.
Now it looks like he’ll get to MEET him. The team says they’re planning to set something up later this week. (BBC)
