For many, that comeback started at Napoli last season when Milan overturned a 0-2 deficit to draw 2-2. On the pitch that day from the first moment to the last was Francesco Acerbi.Influential on and off the pitch, and remembered fondly as an honest and reliable person during his time with the club, the current Sassuolo defender had a testicular tumour removed in July but has recently confirmed a cancer relapse.However, Acerbi did receive a pleasant surprise this week after a phone call from his idol George Weah. The defender sent a message via twitter to Weah to wish him a happy new year and Weah responded by giving his support and encouragement.A fantastic gesture by Weah and which will have been appreciated by Acerbi who is going through the biggest fight of his life right now.
