Johnsen joins Trophy Tour

Manchester United's DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour is coming to Turkey from 13-15 March.

Ex-Reds Ronny Johnson and Viv Anderson will fly to Istanbul with Turkish Airlines, United’s official airline partner, and accompany the Barclays Premier League trophy as DHL deliver the latest leg of the tour.

For Johnsen, it's a chance to return to the city where he played for a season in the 90s – the Reds signed the Norwegian defender from Besiktas in 1996.

There are more than two million dedicated United supporters in Turkey and this is a unique opportunity for them to engage with the club.

Fans will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with the coveted silverware and the two Reds legends during various events, including fan parties and in-store activity.

Exact times and venues for the Turkey leg will be announced in due course at www.manutd.com/trophytour.

The DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour has already visited India, Thailand and the Middle East in the last month and there are many more destinations to come.
