En dejlig lille historie er opstået på sociale medier, der viser at Adam Lallana har begge ben plantet i jorden, og tager sig tid til sine fans.
Liverpools midtbanespiller, som i øjeblikket er ude med en muskelskade, stødte ind i en fan ved navn Ashwin Johri i Cape Town og fik taget et hurtigt billede, som du kan se lige her:
Men historien fortsætter
Faktisk var Ashwin så heldig at han stødte ind i Lallana igen på en restaurant et par dage senere, og denne gang gjorde Liverpools stjerne virkelig at han har en fan for livet:
UPDATE: So after running into @officiallallana earlier this week, I ran into him again at breakfast the following morning. I hate approaching athletes during meals, so timed my move before his food arrived. I asked him if I could buy him a beer later during the day and he seemed rather forthcoming. Now, I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect him to come through. Obviously. We exchanged numbers and he asked me to get in touch once I returned from my day out. Fast forward to the evening, and I’m waiting at our hotel bar and he DOES turn up. We had a drink each and spoke for a good half hour. He even welcomed the idea of FaceTiming a friend of mine (@stewartscott) who’s a massive #Liverpool fan. After that, he took his leave. (That’s when this picture was clicked). As he was leaving, he said he’ll get in touch AGAIN later that night. Of course, I thought he was simply being polite. But what do you know, we meet up again after dinner and this time it’s with friends. The 10 of us hung out decently late into the night, talking football, travel, TV shows, a bit of politics, and your usual fluff. Adam is a class act. Not only is he very humble but also extremely attentive. By no means does he crave the spotlight and is happy to take the back seat and let others do the talking. Inviting a stranger to join him and his friends, after only spending a brief amount of time with them, tells you all you need to know about him. I wish him the speediest of recoveries and great success in all of his future endeavors. Hoping our paths cross again in the future sometime. . . . #Lallana #ThreeLions #LFC #CapeTown #ClassAct
