Touched by the initiative of a 6-year-old Scottish boy and his father, who cleaned up a memorial damaged by fascist graffiti in the east of Glasgow, PSG sent the child several club accessories, as well as ” an invitation to attend a match at the Parc des Princes.
This is the beautiful story of the day. At the end of June in the eastern suburbs of Glasgow, Steven sees photos on social networks of a degraded Spanish Civil War memorial, a monument dedicated to the Scots who fought during the conflict. Revolted by fascist graffiti, this father takes his son Steven Jr to clean the memorial, the 6-year-old being decked out in a PSG jersey on his back.
Al-Khelaïfi “proud and inspired” by the two Scots
Magic of the Internet, the pretty initiative relayed since by the Scottish daily The National reached the ears of the Parisian club, which hastened to make a symbolic gesture to reward the efforts of this little Scotsman. In a message posted on Twitter, Steven Sr. posted two photos. One of a letter signed by Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the Parisian president, confiding how “proud and inspired” he was by the community work of the two members of the McGowan family. And another of his happy son, surrounded by official Paris Saint-Germain accessories, including a signed Neymar jersey.
Something to delight the two Scots, the father thanking the French team for his gesture which will make his son “a PSG fan for life”. Steven Jr has also been invited to Paris to experience a match at the Parc des Princes next season.
