Just a little quirky story about cucumbers

In the Spring of 2011 the German government accused completely incorrectly the Spanish farmers of Almería of being the cause of the e-coli outbreak. They were WRONG …but took time to admit it. The result was that 50,000 farmers and farm-workers lost their job as hundreds of thousands of tons of cucumbers were destroyed.

Del Nido, the ex-president of Sevilla football club decided to show solidarity with the farming community and so for the 2011/2012 pre-season his team wore this amazing shirt with the logo “I love pepinos” (I love cucumbers!)

Respect to him for that
