Club pays tribute to United fan, Jing Yongxing
Manchester United are saddened to hear of the passing of Chinese football coach Jing Yongxing.
Hearing of the news, the club sent Jing a 2019/20 home jersey which was signed by all of the current first-team squad, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The United manager also sent a signed letter.
However, sadly Jing passed away the day before the game and did not get the opportunity to see himself on the billboard.
Jing was a passionate football coach and took so much joy from educating others about the sport he loved.
Upon hearing the news of Jing’s illness, he received messages of support from Chinese national team manager Li Tie and player Yu Dabao, who participated in one of Jing’s training sessions.
Everyone at Manchester United would like to send their deepest condolences to Jing’s friends and family, including his wife, Shen Chan.
