Mukkam: Riyaz, a hardcore football lover and a Thottumukkam native, has become unique by designing his bedroom with logo and flag of Manchester United FC, his favourite club in the world.
His bride Mufeeda was surprised to see her life partner Riyaz’s love for his favourite football club in the world. Although she knew her groom was a football lover, she had never expected this kind of love.
As she stepped into the bedroom of her husband’s house after marriage, she was shocked to see the logo, jersey and flags of Manchester United FC on everything that existed in the room. On the wall, bed, almirah and on the ceiling … it was everywhere.
Bedsheet and pillow covers were specially designed and stitched with the logo of the club along with the couple’s name beneath.
The ceiling of the room was designed with logo along with a tagline that read ‘the most coupling team in the world’.
Riyaz who had played for the Town Team Areekode, KRS Kozhikode FC and FC Kondotty clubs went to Kuwait four years back. He found time to play football amidst the busy schedule of his job in a courier company there. On Fridays, he spends whole time for the game. Thus, he became part of the AKFC team in Kuwait. AKFC is the champions of Kuwait-Indian Premier League.
So far, this wing back player has won several awards including one for the best player. Lionel Messi is his favourite player.
