It seems that football has become a very cynical place in the past few years, players tend to only care about themselves and trying to get more followers on social media so a lot of their antics just come across as self serving.
This might be completely staged, but it’s a really adorable moment to watch. A young PSG fan met Marco Verratti and completely broke down in tears:
? Vous vous rappelez de l’enfant qui est venu faire signer son maillot du PSG à Marco Verratti dans #VerrattiCommeJamais ?

I’m not sure how old that fan is but he’s almost the same height as the diminutive Italian, but it shows that football can still bring joy to the people.
