With Saudi Arabia treating the European Football transfer market as their own personal supermarket, it is getting harder and harder for the teams to keep up with what teams from Saudi Arabia is offering. As it turns out it’s not just the deeply pocketed teams, it’s also the fans.

A hilarious video of ex-Liverpool defensive midfielder Fabinho has gone viral in which a fan in Saudi Arabia was so impressed by the Brazilian that he gifted him a gold Rolex after the match. Fabinho seemed shocked at the gift and was unsure of what to make of it. In the end he shakes the fans hand and left but not before dropping the watch once.
