A wonderful post has been written on the Manchester United Reddit page on the social media site.
The post was written by a Man United fan who only has one leg.
The fan has a second, United #7 customised prosthetic leg, and last weekend after the Sunderland game, it got a major upgrade.
The story, as told by the United supporter, went as follows:
So after Saturday game I went near Munich Tunnel where, after matches, some players give their autographs as they are going to their cars.
I was in third row so it wasn’t easy. I stood just on my left leg, holding two friends, and wielding my prosthetic leg as high as I could.
Memphis was first to sign it, but I almost lost my chance. He passed near us as we were shouting “Sign the leg!!!”, but then my friend took my leg and slipped it under his nose :D
Memphis was so confused when he was holding my leg, I think it was first time someone wanted his signature on something so strange :D
Then we were waiting for other players, and (Daley) Blind, (Matteo) Darmian and (Antonio) Valencia passed near us, but they were only signing first row stuff and didn’t see my prosthetic.
At the end, (Juan) Mata, Ander (Herrera) and David (De Gea) showed up, but unfortunately Mata went in other direction, and I didn’t managed to get (the) “Spanish trio” of signatures – only David’s and Ander’s.
A steward helped me with their signatures as he took my leg and asked them to sign it.
I’m so happy right now! I will use this socket for just a couple of months and then it will take some major spot in my room!
