Get the look: Chinese New Year

Friday 22 January 2021 09:00

Unbeaten away from home this season in the league. Top spot in the table. Twelve points ahead of this stage last season. The year of the Ox hasn't started too badly, so far.

Take a look the Chinese New Year range at United Direct and choose your favourite to welcome in the Year of the Ox.

The list of Manchester United oxen includes greats like Sir Bobby Charlton, Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford, but how do you spot someone born in the year of the Ox? What can you expect from them? Well, you can anticipate someone who is hard working, busy and active, and of course, very popular among their friends. That reminds us of someone...

Check out our CNY bomber jacket.

Yes, that’s right, Ole himself is an ox, born in 1973 and if that describes anyone, it’s the boss. He’s certainly been working diligently to ensure United have gained some great wins this season, while pushing the Reds to the top of the league.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is another fellow ox, born in 1997. The right-back has certainly shown his dedication since joining the club in 2019. Check out Aaron and his teammates sporting the Chinese New Year black bomber jacket above, ahead of the match against Liverpool last weekend. The jacket showcases a golden ox swirled by the auspicious cloud on the back to elevate a classic design.

The new pre-match jersey is also available as part of the CNY range.

Fran Bentley, Emily Ramsey and Mary Earps from the Women’s team also donned the new Chinese New Year jersey as they warmed up for our clash with Chelsea last weekend. While United Women don’t have any oxen in the squad, the team are certainly proving they have similar traits, with eight wins out of 11 so far this season.
