Even during this troubled time, the magic of Christmas continues to operate. In the little ones. As with the oldest. This is undoubtedly one of the most touching images of recent days. It comes to us from Spain where an Atlético de Madrid supporter was offered a vintage jersey from his favorite club. Overwhelmed by emotion, this grandfather literally burst into tears when he saw the flocked packaging box of the Madrid club’s crest, without even knowing the nature of his gift.
It is his family members who will open the package for him and reveal its contents. “To understand what is going on, you have to have cried inside the Calderón (editor’s note: the old Colchoneros stadium), which is my home. Or the Metropolitan (editor’s note: the new men’s stadium in Simeone), where my grandfather cried while holding my father by the hand, ”writes the author of the video.
The precious tunic probably reminded the grandfather of a magnificent childhood memory since it was a replica of the jersey worn during the 1939-40 season, the year of the Colchoneros’ first championship coronation, according to elements from several Iberian media. It should be noted that at that time the name of the team was Club Atlético Aviación, due to an alliance with Club Aviación Nacional.
The video already has over a million views on social media.
