Things may not have been going well for Rolando Aarons over the past year, but the winger has just made a few people’s Christmas – with him spontaneously paying for customers Xmas shopping in Tesco and handing bags of food to the homeless.
The 23-year-old has only just returned from a pretty unsuccessful loan spell with Czech side Slovan Liberec, however he’s wasted no time getting into the festive spirit since arriving back in the UK.
Here’s what he posted on social media just before he headed to a nearby Tesco in his home town of Bristol:
“I know how expensive Christmas can get for everyone so that’s why I am going to pay for a few customers’ Christmas shopping at Tesco Eastville Bristol later today at random. See whoever there!”
Fair play to Aarons for this. After failing to be included in Rafa’s Premier League squad and struggling to make any impact during recent loan spells in Italy and the Czech Republic it would’ve been easy for him to sulk.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see more players doing this over the festive period.
Good on you Rolando!
