An 8-Year-Old Cork Fan Writes An Adorable Letter Begging Shane Long To Stay At Southampton

An 8-Year-Old Cork Fan Writes An Adorable Letter Begging Shane Long To Stay At Southampton
By Conor O'Leary Updated

The people have spoken.

They want Shane Long to stay on England's south coast with the Saints.

At least, that's what Southampton fan Stephen Delaney wants. The Corkonian wrote the letter to the Irish striker as speculation mounts about the striker's future. Tweeted by his dad Terrence, the letter was written in the days before Sadio Mane's departure to Liverpool.

Liverpool and Tottenham have been mentioned as potential destinations for Long, but nothing concrete has happened as of yet - while Stephen is hoping the man he met at Ireland's training camp in Fota will remain with the Saints.

Here's his brilliant letter in full:

Dear Shane,

Hi. Shane. You are my favourite soccer player. I love your celebrations when you score a goal. If I was a soccer player when I grow up I might do the same celebrations. I'm glad you liked the photo of me and you. I hope you stay at Southampton.

My dad is annoyed that Koeman left and went to Everton.

I want to ask you are you happy being next to Pelle, Tadic, Mane, and Steven Davis? I hope it's okay being with them because I hope you stay at Southampton.

From Stephen
