Video: Valencia help 7-year-old fan with cerebral palsy meet his hero Alvaro Negredo at Mestalla
David Colomer doesn't let his condition come in the way of supporting the club he loves and he was the happiest fan at Mestalla on matchday
Dreams do come true, and in this case it was Valencia’s Alvaro Negredo who made a 7-year-old fan’s day at the Mestalla. David Colomer suffers from cerebral palsy, but that does not stop him from watching the game he loves and supporting his club.
And when Valencia found out about his passion for the club, they invited David to watch hir first ever La Liga match when they played Getafe. If you think he was happy when he got the invitation, you should see how his eyes light up when he enters the Mestalla.
Valencia won the game 1-0 thanks to Manchester City’s on-loan striker Alvaro Negerdo. And the Spanish striker then made David’s day by meeting him after the game and spending a few minutes with him. Negredo even gave him his shirt with a personalised message.
David’s day was complete when they took him out onto the pitch on his wheelchair and the club displayed a photo of him on their big screen. A truly memorable first visit for this football fan who never stopped smiling.
Negredo was moved by David and said: “He could enjoy his first time at Mestalla and for me it is an honour to be giving him a shirt. He gave us luck and we won!”
