A pack of pork for my shirt? Deal.

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

MADRID — A Real Madrid fan had just the right gift to con­vince Ser­gio Ramos to hand over his shirt — a pack­age of pork.

The fan went into San­ti­ago Bern­abeu Sta­dium for Sun­day’s game against Real So­ciedad car­ry­ing a sign that said, “Ser­gio, if you give me your shirt, I’ll give you a tray of pork in lard.”

Af­ter Madrid’s 3-0 win, Ramos ran across the field and threw his shirt to the fan in the stands. Smil­ing, the de­fender asked for the meat and waited a few sec­onds as a stew­ard picked up the pack­age up from the fan.

A video of the ex­change was posted on Twit­ter, and sev­eral pho­tos showed Ramos re­turn­ing to the chang­ing rooms car­ry­ing the pack of meat.

Lo­cal me­dia iden­ti­fied the fan as Ser­gio Sanchez, who is from Ve­jer de la Fron­tera in south­ern Spain, which is known for its pork in lard, or “lomo en man­teca,” as it’s called in Span­ish.

“He asked for it twice,” Sanchez told chan­nel CSN Cadiz. “He didn’t want to leave with­out it.”
