Marc Bartra was the star of one of this season’s most incredible stories from the world of football.
At the end of the Ruhr derby in the Veltins-Arena, the defender caught sight of a photo of a Borussia Dortmund fan surrounded by Schalke fans and set about his quest on social media to find the fan.
In just under a day, Bartra had managed to locate the follower in question, Stefanie Adam-Paap, who was invited by the player to the Sports City of Borussia Dormtund.
Bartra and Stefanie talked together for a long time about the player’s original initiative. "It is pretty impressive that a player is aware of something like this. It's great," said the fan. "It is surprising to find someone in such a short amount of time", the player admitted.
Stefanie returned home after the meeting with an excellent souvenir of the occasion: the signed Marc Bartra jersey.
