Newell’s Old Boys captain Maxi Rodriguez dropped in the Argentinian club’s oldest fan last week to deliver a couple of special presents in person on the occasion of her 105th birthday.

Born in 1912, Tati Rodriguez (no relation) moved to Rosario at the age of 18, immediately fell in love with Newell’s and she’s been a staunch supporter ever since – in fact, the club itself is only nine years older than her!

Anyway, Maxi is Tati’s favourite current player, so the birthday girl made sure to personally invite the ex-Liverpool midfielder along to her party on Friday.

Sure enough, he turned up, and with an armful of gifts in tow – namely, a Newell’s jersey with his name and number on the back and a second emblazoned with Tati’s altogether more impressive digits.

Smashing stuff.
