Louis Diamond and his family have thanked Fenerbahce for bringing them out to Istanbul to be reunited with former Manchester United star Robin van Persie.

Fenerbahçe fans started an online campaign to raise $2000 so that the Diamond family can travel to Istanbul and watch Robin Van Persie play for his new club back in July.

The club responded to the campaign by inviting the family to Istanbul for Fenerbahçe’s opening game of the season against Eskişehirspor a source close to the club told

“We have had a wonderful time,” Louis’s father stated on LigTV following Fenerbahce’s 2-0 victory over Eskişehirspor.

“When we made the video and when Robin left Man United we were sad, but its great to be able to meet him here at Fenerbahce.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to the president of Fenerbahce and everybody here who has made our dream come true.”

Louis Diamond became an internet sensation when a clip of the young United fan crying over the transfer of Van Persie was confirmed.

Van Persie completed his move from United to Fenerbahçe last month and signed a three-year deal in-front of 18,000 fans at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium.

The Diamond family had another treat in store as the Yellow Canaries booked them a five day holiday on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. The family will spend the next five days in Antalya.
