Conor McGregor showed his support for American Football legend Tom Brady via twitter. Tom announced his return to the sport 40 days after he retired.
Tom “Terrific” Brady is the greatest quarterback in the history of Football and his Hall of Fame career was set to come to an end on February 1 this year. His historic career with the New England Patriots ended with 6 Super Bowl rings, after which he joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for yet another ring.
The winningest quarterback in football history retired with all the records, ranking 1st in passing touchdowns, Super Bowl wins, Super Bowl MVP etc, his return will probably make it impossible for anyone to take those records from him. However just a week after his retirement Brady would say “never say never” during interviewers when asked if he would play again. This early sign had fans and the American football world in a craze before he announced his return to the NFL, for “unfinished business.” It seems the GOAT can’t stay away from the sport, even at 44.
“These past two months I’ve realised my place is still on the field and not in the stands. I love my teammates and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season with Tampa. Unfinished business LFG“- Tom Brady
Conor McGregor relates to Tom Brady’s story as he prepares for his own return
Conor took to Twitter to support Brady saying that he will return stronger and better, as champions do and thanked Brady for his Irish spirit. He tweets, “”Champions come back stronger and better! Love the sport and it shows! Tom Brady – thank you for the Irish spirit and the big news”. Brady’s father is Irish and he’s kept no secret about his love for the country and culture, which might have played a part in Conor’s tweet.
Conor is in the middle of his own comeback story with the UFC. Ever since his leg injury, sustained in his Dustin Porier fight, he has been sidelined, rehabilitating his leg. However this hasn’t stopped Conor from training, he reportedly went into the gym and started lifting all the weights since it was all he could do with his leg.
