Edgar Davids Rescues Stranded Barnet Fans

Dutch manager comes to the aid of fans whose bus had broken down.

Barnet fans were given a pleasant surprise after finding themselves stranded on the M6 according to The Telegraph.

The club’s supporters were making the 215 mile journey back to their homes after watching their side suffer a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Accrington Stanley.

Former Tottenham, Juventus and Ajax star Edgar Davids, who is currently the side’s manager, was sent off for two bookable offences and the supporters thought they would see no more of the dreadlocked Dutchman until their side’s next game.

But as their coach broke down on the side of the road, who should appear to rescue them? None other than Davids himself.

The former Champions League winner reportedly drove past the stranded fans in the team bus and instructed the driver to pull over at the next service station. He told the players to get off the bus and turned around to go and rescue 36 of the club’s cold and wet supporters.

Davids then proceeded to buy everyone a round of coffee as they waited for their coach to be fixed so they could resume their journey home.

While those supporters may be appreciative of Davids gesture, it remains to be seen whether his efforts will save Barnet from relegation to the Conference.
