Aaron Mooy has met a young fan who wrote the Huddersfield Town star a letter which went viral following the Terriers’ Premier League win last weekend.
Mooy scored a stunning strike in Huddersfield’s upset 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday, the club’s first win over the Red Devils in 65 years.
And the Caltex Socceroo’s performance caught the eye of young Huddersfield fan, Adam Bhana, with his hand-written letter to the club gaining huge traction on the internet after it was tweeted by Club Director Sean Jarvis.
After being alerted to the letter on social media, the club organised a meeting between Mooy and Bhana on Friday before Huddersfield departed for this weekend’s clash with Liverpool at Anfield.
Mooy greeted the youngster with gifts before taking him on a tour of the club’s training ground and meeting some of the other players from the team’s Premier League squad.
Adam’s father Mo told Huddersfield’s official website: “It was a great day, Adam was really shy to begin with but really enjoyed the experience. They took him into the training ground area where he met a few players and Aaron himself.
“They then took him into the players’ lounge where he met Tommy Smith, Tom Ince and a few of the other lads, he got a real heroes welcome. People were high fiving him and made him feel really welcome.
“He had a nice chat with Aaron and told him that he’s got to eat a lot of healthy food because he’s going to score 5 goals tomorrow.
“I would like to thank everyone at Huddersfield Town for making my boys day, as a family we are truly humbled.”
Mooy said he was pleased to meet the young fan and paid tribute to his family following the encounter.
“It was great to receive such a fantastic letter, he clearly has fantastic values and it was really great to finally meet him. Adam was a really nice lad and is a real credit to his family," Mooy said.
