He is still in the recovery process and is continuing to work with the club’s medical department for the foreseeable future.

”I would like to thank everyone at the club that has helped me since day one,” said Taylor. “The nurses at the Christie and HCA healthcare, plus Melissa from MacMillan Cancer Support, have all provided me with wonderful care.

”Words cannot describe how much my family has helped me through this. My mum and stepdad Matthew, my brother George, Meir and my girlfriend Lydia, and all the rest of the family, have provided invaluable support.”

Everyone at the club is thrilled with the positive update on Max and he will continue to receive our unwavering support at Manchester United.
