Reds send their greetings in Chinese
Anderson, Büttner and Johnstone join a traditional routine
Our players attempt to master tricks and skills on the 'diabolo'
To mark the start of the Year of the Snake, three Reds first-teamers took part in activities commonly practised by Chinese communities at this time.
In the carousel above you can watch videos of Anderson, Alex Büttner and Sam Johnstone when they recently joined us at the Chinese Arts Centre in Manchester.
The trio launched paper lanterns containing New Year goodwill messages sent by fans via Facebook, took part in a ‘lion dance’ routine led by local group the Northern Dragons, and got to grips with a traditional Chinese yo-yo, or ‘diabolo’.
Chinese speakers can find more exclusive content in our dedicated New Year section at www.manutd.com/cny.
Everyone at United would like to send our best wishes for a prosperous 2013 to all Reds fans who are celebrating Lunar New Year.
