Some young football fans show love by fashioning their own clothes to honor international legends. And for some, it can lead to a dream come true.
Rabat –Borussia Dortmund’s Achraf Hakimi has responded to a young Moroccan boy who made himself an Achraf Hakimi jersey out of plastic in honor of his idol.
On his official Facebook, the Atlas Lion called on the family of the boy to contact him.
The Moroccan boy’s family shared a picture on Facebook and asked others to share it widely, hoping to reach Hakimi or Dortmund officials.
The move imitated that of a young Afghan, named Murtaza, who became famous for making a plastic jersey of Argentina’s Lionel Messi.
In 2016, a picture of Murtaza wearing his homemade creation put him in danger from the Taliban and forced his family to flee to Pakistan. On December 13, the young Murtaza had the chance to meet the Argentinian phenomenon, Lionel Messi.
The meeting came before FC Barcelona’s friendly match against the Egyptian club, Al Ahly, in Doha.
