Ahead of their trip to face Sunderland on Sunday, the Manchester United first team took time out on Saturday to meet fans at Manchester United Foundation’s latest Dream Day.
The full team, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and captain Wayne Rooney, met 15 fans who suffer from serious and life-limiting illnesses at the Aon Training Complex.
Kayden, 10, from Northern Ireland, who suffers from quadriplegic cerebral palsy was delighted to meet the team, especially his idol, Ibrahimovic.

“I was really excited to come, we had to get up at 3am to get here but it’s been so much fun, especially meeting Ibrahimovic,” Kayden said. “He signed my shirt and wrapped his arm around me to take a photo – it’s such a good day.”
Ibrahimovic also enjoyed meeting the fans.
“It’s fantastic to meet the children; whatever we do it’s all about the children and I’m happy to see them because they are our supporters,” he said. “Whether they are having good moments or bad moments, it’s a big occasion for all of us and it makes me happy to see them.”
