Ole's Reds make fans' memories at Dream Day
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his first-team players made special memories for excited fans at Manchester United Foundation’s latest Dream Day.
The heart-warming Dream Day event takes place twice a season with supporters travelling from across the world to meet their footballing heroes and watch a first-team training session from the visitors' area at the Jimmy Murphy Centre.
Ole used to attend Dream Days as a player and enjoyed giving his support once again in his new role at the club. “I’ve really enjoyed the Dream Day today; this is such an important day for the children and players too. We know we can make a difference to families; the children have met their heroes today."

Children with life-limiting conditions have met their United heroes, thanks to our Foundation's heart-warming event.
Henry, 16, was delighted to meet his favourite players. He said: “It’s been great watching the players train; it’s a surreal and amazing experience. My favourite part has been meeting the players, and seeing how nice they are. It’s been a stressful time catching up on my GCSEs, so this has given me a huge boost.”
Curtis, who is nine years old and has spina bifida, travelled from Northern Ireland for the event. He told us: “I was so excited when the players came over; it’s been great to meet them as I’ve been a fan all my life. It’s been good for my confidence, meeting everyone, and it’s been good to get to know the players, ask them some questions and take a photo with them.”
