Die-hard Manchester United fan gets Liverpool crest tattooed on his leg – but it’s all for a good cause
Liverpool and Manchester United is one of the Premier League’s fiercest rivalries – but this fan has put it all to one side for a good cause.
Diehard United supporter Wayne Ryan had the Liverpool crest tattooed on his leg to raise funds for a four-year-old girl who suffers from acute myeloid leukaemia.
The 33-year-old said he “felt sick” while the ink touched his leg but he kept in mind young cancer victim, Mia Tate.
“I haven’t even got a United tattoo, my friends are all calling me mad but they have kids and they realise it is for a really important purpose.
“You wouldn't catch me putting an LFC shirt on for one minute so this was a big deal but Mia’s family are really grateful for me doing it,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
So far, he has raised around €3,330 for Mia’s family.
He also added that he would welcome any rich United fan who wants to come in and offer €100,000 to get the tattoo removed.
The artist responsible for Wayne’s new tattoo is a Liverpool fan, who told him he was going to make it “hurt as much as possible” beforehand.
