McElhenney says he’s ‘fallen in love’ with Reynolds because of Wrexham

Rob McElhenney has revealed he has ‘fallen in love’ with co-owner Ryan Reynolds after taking over Wrexham. The two Hollywood stars have enjoyed quite the season with the Welsh side, after securing the National League title late last month.

Phil Parkinson’s team capped off a remarkable season by clinching promotion back to the Football League and racking up a mammoth 111 points across their 46 matches. Two men who have been instrumental to their success are owners McElhenney and Reynolds.

And the American pairing have seemingly formed quite the bond since entering into co-ownership. He told YouTube channel Aarthi and Sriram: “We’ve just kind of like fallen in love with each other in a platonic way, over the course of the season, and that was a really important thing for us too, because I feel very strongly specifically about men and male relationships.

“I know how difficult it is for a lot of men to express love for each other, especially publicly. I’m just not afraid to do that because – maybe because of my dad or because of the way I was raised – Ryan is the same, and I am still very proud that we were able to put that out in the world.”

The Welsh side finally secured their return to the Football League against Boreham Wood last month, thanks to a brace from Paul Mullin and a goal through Elliott Lee. The scenes post-match were ecstatic, with McElhenney and Reynolds right at the centre of it.

Detailing the scenes, the American said: “I don’t remember hearing the final whistle. I don’t even remember the end of the game. I just remember there being people on the pitch, and then hugging Ryan [Reynolds]…

I think it felt like there was a weight that was lifted, not just off of us, but off of the entire organisation. It’s the third oldest football team in the world, and they’ve been struggling for a long time so that’s been our goal, and that was, I mean truly one of the greatest moments of my life and it just happened last week.”
