    E l Valencia CF was playing a Copa del Rey match at the Molinón against Sporting de Gijón. A match in which both teams played the pass to the quarterfinals of the KO competition and was the opportunity of Javi Muñoz, a Valencian living in Oviedo , to be able to take his son to see it live Although that did not stop there.

    He put a message on Twitter, where he mentioned the ‘black and white’ club, and in it he could read that he wanted to take “for the first time” to see “the team of our loves”. His son Jorge “is a child who has a rare disease and although he can’t play football very well, he is passionate”. He suffers from neurofibromatosis-1, a disease that affects 1 in 3,000 personalities and causes tumors (neurofibromas) in nerve tissue in the skin.

On the morning before the game, they stopped by the hotel where Ricardo Arias and the players were waiting for them: “The boy was able to take fool photos of all the footballers and the truth is that it was great”.

    Although here he could not resist listening to his father and wanted to intervene Jorge, the young Valencian: “I went to school, but I had to go out, and well, I was extremely excited, I met many players and my favorite was Cavani , I took a picture with everyone”.
