Manchester United stars spread joy at Dream Day event

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag and his first-team squad recently took a break from the pitch to create unforgettable memories with fans at the Manchester United Foundation’s Dream Day.

The event, held at the Carrington training ground, welcomed fans facing serious and life-limiting illnesses for a day filled with joy and inspiration.

Among the stars present were Bruno Fernandes, Luke Shaw, Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho, who went above and beyond to make dreams come true for their devoted supporters.

Adding to the excitement, United legend Wes Brown was also on hand to greet guests, providing them with goodie bags and shirts as mementos of the special day.

Captain Bruno Fernandes said: “Dream Days have been part of the club for so many years. We know that football can bring so much joy to the fans, and I hope that today it’s been a special moment for them, and we’ve put smiles on their faces.”

Teammate Rasmus Højlund said: “They are so happy to see us, and we are happy to see them too. That’s what football is all about; it’s been a really positive experience.”

For fans like 13-year-old Harley, the Dream Day was truly magical. Meeting his hero Kobbie Mainoo, Harley said: “It’s been a once-in-a-lifetime experience; today was really fun. I was having surgery in January and now I’m here, it’s crazy.”

Dream Days organized by the Manchester United Foundation continue to spread joy and inspiration to fans facing adversity. To learn more about Dream Days and the impactful work of the Manchester United Foundation, visit www.mufoundation.org
