Argentine football fan donates his birthday money to favorite club

Franco Villegas is an 11-year-old football fan and lifelong supporter of Instituto Atlético Central Córdoba, a team from the center of Argentina.

Yet in a heartwarming gesture the fan decided to donate his 300 pesos (around $31) of birthday money to his favorite club, in an act which has gone viral across the country’s media.

“As a fan of the club I am donating 300 pesos, I was given this money for my birthday. From you, I would like a shirt signed by all of the players as a present, if that’s possible,” Franco wrote in a letter, shared on the club’s Twitter page.

The club is currently trying to raise some two million pesos to balance debts accrued during the season.

Player Christian Bernardi made Franco’s wish come true, presenting the signed shirt to the mini fan.
