Barnet fans already have a lot to thank Edgar Davids for: the Dutch legend manages (and plays for) the club despite not receiving a salary.
But now a group of Bees supporters need to be even more grateful to the 40-year-old after he rescued them while stranded on the M6.
The fans were making their way back to London after travelling up to Barnet's League Two match against Accrington Stanley at the weekend.
But the coach they hired broke down, leaving them stranded in freezing conditions half-way through their 215-mile drive home.
Davids noticed them huddling for shelter at the side of the road as the Barnet team coach sped past, and immediately took action: he told the driver to pull off at the nearest services, ordered the players to get off, and told the coach driver to go and rescue the fans.
"I saw the coach on the side of the highway with some of the supporters standing outside in the cold,” Davids told the Daily Telegraph.
"It was the least I could do for my team, to send the coach back to pick them up so they don't stand in the cold.
“Shortly after the coach had arrived it started to rain, I was glad I did it. No man left behind!”
One of the stranded fans picked up the story in a post on the club forum.
"The coach is warm and very, very plush," he wrote. "It takes us to the services where the players have been treating their bodies like temples at Burger King and sampling the other limited delights of a northern service station.
"To a man they are friendly, talk to the fans, pose for photos and wish us all the best. Then they get back on their bus. Our replacement bus arrives and 11.15pm were back in Barnet.
"You can follow the plastic Premiership as much as you like – but a day like that only happens at Barnet."
