Can you imagine what this guy might have done if Leo Messi had signed an autograph? Or if, after the match, Messi had given this guy his game-worn jersey? The poor fellow may have just fallen over dead in world-stopping delight.
This happened during yesterday’s friendly in Frankfurt pitting Germany against Messi and Argentina.
We’re not advocating pitch invasions. Not at all. “Bad fan! Bad!”
But if you just cannot contain yourself (this poor fellow couldn’t), this is the way you do it. Be nice, shake a hand, and then report in a non-threatening manner to the nearest authority.
