Nigerians are not just an ordinary observer of sports activities, they are also a die-hard fan. Have you ever been brutally beaten because you are a fan of a particular football club? Or Have you ever been saved from disgrace, humility or beating because you support one football team?
Funny as this question may look, an unidentified taxify driver will forever be grateful for being a fan of Manchester United and he will thank God more for wearing the team jersey on one fateful day.
A tweeter identified as @boogeythat has narrated her experience how a particular Taxify driver was saved from thorough beating because he was wearing the jersey of Manchester United.
Taxify guy hits another guy’s car from behind, huge guy comes out ready to whoop ass, sees his jersey and says “God save you say you be Man U fan” then gets in and drives off. Football just saved a life.
Who says football can’t bridge the gap between tribes and Nations, who says football cannot change the world we live in. Football just saved a life!
