Crying Manchester United fan gets flown to Turkey to see Robin van Persie

Well played Fenerbahce, we salute you!

There's nothing worse than when your favourite player leaves your club and you in an emotional wreck – it doesn't get any easier as you get older...

And When Robin van Persie left Manchester United, some fans were happy, some were angry and in the case of poor Louis Diamond who was DEVASTATED! 

Even if you're not a fan of Man United or Van Persie, the youngster's tears were enough to tug on even the coldest of heart strings – not us though, we're hard as nails.


Since the video was posted, it's gained national and international attention and young Louis has now been flown out to Turkey by Van Persie's new club Fenerbahce!

The Diamonds will get the chance to finally meet Van Persie, and possibly watch him play for his new club when they face off against Eskisehirspor – though there is a doubt over his fitness. 

Louis dad, Sam Diamond was quoted by the Guardian as saying: “We want to thank Fenerbahce and the president for making this happen. We can’t wait to see Robin van Persie play,”

Well played Fenerbahce, well played!
