Adam Bhana found the money as he was leaving the John Smith’s Stadium and had been told by his dad that he could not keep it because it wasn’t his.
Adam’s dad, Mo, told Radio 5 Live that his son had at first wanted to give the money to manager David Wagner to put towards the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to the Terriers from Real Madrid but changed his mind and decided Mooy deserved it for helping Huddersfield secure their first win against Manchester United since 1952.
So Adam sat down and wrote a letter to the club. “I was at the Huddersfield against Manchester United match. I found a £5 note at the stadium and gave it to Dad because we cannot keep what is not ours,” said Adam. “Can you please ask Mr Wagner if Aaron Mooy can keep the money because he played very well and scored yesterday. I have put the £5 note in the envelope. Thank you.”
Town’s commercial director Sean Jarvis posted a picture of the letter Adam sent to him on Twitter and tweeted: “Pure class from young Adam”. And the youngster could be rewarded for his honesty and kind gesture by meeting Mooy, who replied: “I would love to meet you Adam.”
