I don't comment often, nobody even probably knows who I am even though I am here 3 years now, reading, analysing... It's not that I don't have my own opinion, it's just the way I am, I choose to stand in the shadows.
I`ve wrote a couple of articles so far, the last one almost two years ago if I remember correctly. Reading the newspaper this morning, I stumbled upon a story about our goalkeeper on loan at FK Vojvodina, Matej Delac.
You`ve probably never heard of FC Vojvodina, they are a Serbian first league club, usually in the shadows of FC Red Star and FC Partizan, but in recent season, they are getting more in the spotlight due to their never say die attitude.
Stojan Kolarov is a huge fan of FC Vojvodina, but unfortunately he is ill from a rare disease that inhibits the growth and ties you up to a wheelchair. The disease is called mucopolysaccharidosis. FC Vojvodinas official fan group called Firma 89 organised a charity event to gather the funds that are needed for Stojans surgery, but unfortunately they were short by 6000 euros.
The next day, in the morning, before training began, Matej walked into the clubs premises and asked how much money is missing for the surgery of Stojan, stating that he will give the missing amount and also pay for the trip to France, where the surgery will be held.
The clubs officials were baffled, some of them didn't even know what he was talking about and they even knew less on how did he find out about the whole thing. 'Tako to rade ljudine' was the headline in the newspaper, translated it would mean: That's how real and honorable men do it... They show us how simple it is to be a good man. Just give how much you can, whenever you can. You just need to open your eyes and you will find a friend in need. Drowsy from the dreary everyday life, a simple act of kindness from Matej has really opened my eyes.
