Bartra locates the brave fan

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.
