In the wake of the Christmas celebration, the players of Man United men’s and women’s teams have sent Christmas gifts to three children’s hospitals in Greater Manchester.
This is a Christmas tradition followed by the club for many years to light up the mood of patients and staff in the hospitals.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic situation, United’s players couldn’t deliver the gift in person but had them delivered alongside some virtual messages.
Cristiano Ronaldo said: “It is unfortunate that we could not visit the hospitals this year, as it is something I really liked to do when I was last here at Old Trafford.
“It’s so important that we give our support to the young people at this special time of year and it’s an honour for me to be part of this again.”
Over 2,000 gifts were delivered to patients and staff with help from the Manchester Foundation.
