Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho dedicated his goal against Sheriff Tiraspol to a young fan who gave him a pair of personalised shinpads.

A clip of the winger went viral on social media last Friday, when he stopped to sign autographs for a group of United fans after training. 


During the meeting between the pair, the young Red gave Sancho a pair of special shinpads sporting his face and name, with Jadon saying he would wear them for an upcoming game.

And in a lovely moment after opening the scoring against the Moldovan champions, our no.25 held the shinpads up to the camera in recognition of the young Red who gifted them to him.


Speaking after the game to BT Sport, Sancho said: "He gave me some shinpads and he asked me to wear them, so it was a gesture from me to show I was wearing them."

The England playmaker has had a great start to the season and this was his third goal in eight appearances.
