A child that loses his childhood through domestic violence, physical, mental and emotional torture from 3-4 to early 20s, he didn't see a future and see past what was unfolding in front of him. He wanted this life to end, until he came across â½ï¸ and @acjimbo and #footballitalia.
He remembers the happy feeling he felt every weekend, he felt inspired to look forward to the next episode and games of Serie A each weekend. James Richardson was the 1st person to present the beautiful game that become and parent to me. The game understood him and allowed him to express himself to a greatest canvass of #football.
The 1st ever moment he set eyes on the English game was with #manchesterunited in the early 90s. The great @gneville2 and the rest of the team gave this kid the greatest joy and happiness as he found a sense of belonging to an institution he considered home. You saved this kids life and gave him hope. Thank you to @acjimbo @gneville2 @manchesterunited and the beautiful game.
The game is borderless, has one language and has the attributes to bring happiness and peace to all people. It has the ability to bring people together and end misery and misery. It has the power to give hope when at a time there was only despair.
That kid was me... Harpreet Singh
