Exclusive: Mount meets United fans after his move
Mason Mount is a Manchester United player.
Our newest recruit's move from Chelsea was confirmed earlier today (5 July) and what better way to be welcomed to the club than by our dedicated supporters?
Mason met with a selection of United fans at our Carrington training ground following his arrival, even offering a gift to one.
Iman Nadeem celebrated her birthday on the day she met Mount, and was given the club's new adidas home kit by our new no.7.
Mason also posed for pictures and signed autographs for those in attendance, with supporters of various ages offered the opportunity to meet the latest Red.
Deb Henry is a member of our Fans' Forum and FAB. She also has season tickets for both our men's and women's first teams.
"It was an incredible opportunity to meet Mason at the very start of his United career, an opportunity which I really enjoyed," she said.
"Feeling that connection to the team is rewarding for any fan."
Luca Black is also a season-ticket holder.
"Walking up the steps and seeing Mason in a red shirt for the first time behind-the-scenes felt surreal!" he said.
"Being able to meet a star signing for United and seeing their personable side on top of the football player we see on the weekends really builds that deeper connection with the club and players in the team.
"You really feel a part of these players' journeys and watching Mason score a goal will just feel that extra bit nicer from the Stretford End!"
Meeting our fansGallery
Who better to welcome Mason Mount to Carrington than a selection of our loyal supporters?
Rick McGagh, Head of Fan Engagement, said: "We were delighted to invite some of our loyal fans to join Mason on this special day. It was great to see the immediate connection between Mason and the fans and I’m sure he will quickly become a fan favourite at Old Trafford."
This is the latest fan experience that the club has offered to supporters, following the success of our fans' press conferences and supporters’ club warm-up events last season.
