Footballers & Fans: When Worlds Collide

While we know that footballers love their fans, we’re aware that they prefer to do the old ‘meet n’greet’ thang in carefully controlled circumstances. There are, after all, loony people wandering the streets, just waiting for an opportunity to athletically leap across the table and commit unspeakable acts involving massage oil and cake. But more on them later.
Above, we see an individual brandishing a small child in what appears to be an attempt to bring out the paternal in Daveeed Villa and hasten a path along the queue. But while said individual appears to have been successful and attained an audience, has the King of Soul Patch sussed their game? Is he refusing access to the child as a punishment for the devious tricks? Or is he merely offering the child a light massage due to the hours of waiting? Kickettes? Your thoughts?
Meanwhile, we were vaguely amused to see Ryan Giggs looking like he’s about to break into a side-eye situation whilst a friendly looking gent leans in for a photo opp.
Why would our favourite Salt & Pepper Welshman be heading into the peturbed zone, you ask? It may or may not have something to do with Ryan spotting the Kickette staffer entering the vicinity armed with cake and massage oil who may (sadly) have been intercepted by the fleet of security on sight. Damn it.
