A Swedish football fan of Brommapojkarna FC had the surprise of a lifetime this week, when he travelled more than 600 kilometres to find he was the only away fan in the stand.
In addition, because of his dedicated support, former Manchester United midfielder Bojan Djordjic (now playing for Brommapojkarna) has offered committed fan Ander Ung compilmentary tickets for a game of his choice, with a chance to meet the team as well because of his loyal efforts to make it to the game.
Brommapojkarna lost the game 4-2 to title chasers Mjallby, but despite being the only away fan Ung sung as if he was with a crowd of others, and Djordjic has revealed his and his team-mates were grateful of his support.
Speaking to Reuters, Djordjic said: "When I saw him, in his shirt, singing and cheering by himself, I decided I had to do something. So I'm going to pay for him to travel to a game of his choice and he'll get to meet the lads too."
Brommapojkarna won promotion to the first division last season, and it was in their developing academy where young Manchester City forward John Guidetti was found.
Their academy is one of largest in the world, with the club having over 247 teams from the ages of five, to their first team, now playing in the Allsvenskan.
Dedicated fan Ung used to manage one of Brommapojkarna's youth teams, but he moved to the south of Sweden to live in Ystad, meaning that travelling to Bromma weekly is out of the question.
Djordjic added: "You have to lift people up like that. I got his number last night and called him from our team bus. The warmth and joy in his voice was unbelievable. He deserves this."
