He’s spearheading Huddersfield United’s unexpected charge to the English Premier League so it’s only natural for Terriers fans to have taken Aaron Mooy to heart.
But they’ve found an interesting way to express their gratitude to the Caltex Socceroos star.
Mooy revealed the “funny” song dedication he now regularly receives in West Yorkshire.
Sung to the tune of 70s band Boney M’s Hooray! Hooray! It’s a Holi-Holiday, John Smith’s Stadium has been rocking with renditions of ‘Aaron Mooy, Aaron Mooy. Aaron, Aaron Mooy. He’s got no hair, but we don’t care. Aaron, Aaron Mooy’.
“It makes me feel good. It’s a bit of a funny song,” the 26-year-old told the Herald Sun.
“The fans have been brilliant with me and supported me from the start and that helps me a lot with the confidence, knowing they’re behind you.”
Mooy further endeared himself to the home support with his third Championship goal on Saturday night, although it wasn’t enough to stop Newcastle United from claiming a 3-1 victory.
