A STOCKPORT COUNTY fan got a tattoo dedicated to his favourite player THREE days before he signed for another club.
Callum Taylor, 23, was on holiday in Zante last week with four mates when he decided to get his first ever tattoo.
Three days later, the League Two club confirmed right-back Sam Minihan had moved to Halifax Town.
But Callum says he has no regrets and “Super Sammy Minihan” will always be a “Stockport legend” to him.
According to Callum, his Facebook page has exploded after he posted a picture of his £60 tattoo online.
He wrote: “Monday I got a tattoo in Zante of my hero SUPER SAMMY MINIHAN from Stockport County.
“Thursday he signs for another club – hahaha.”
He already has a plan to see if Minihan will autograph his right thigh underneath the tattoo so he can get that inked as well.
Callum told the Manchester Evening News .
He said: “I was dying to get my first ever tattoo. I wanted to get something that I would remember and something fun.
“I walked into the tattoo shop and that’s when I had the idea. I wanted it to be something that I found quite funny.
“Sam Minihan is a legend. He has been at County for six years and he is my favourite player.
“He was a real fans’ favourite. I do not have any regrets. I have even had a conversation with him on Facebook.
“I posted a picture of my tattoo and tagged him into it – and got a reply off him. He said it was unreal and said to me: ‘what a bloke’.
“My mum was just a bit shocked and said: ‘what have you done?’ But all my mates think it’s quality. I have always been a Hatters fan and Super Sammy will always be a legend.”
Minihan, 28, joined on a free transfer from Worcester City in 2016 and made more than 200 appearances over six seasons, winning two league titles with the club.
Stockport County open their League Two season at home to Barrow on Saturday.
