MANCHESTER UNITED stars walked out with their mascots’ names on the back of their shirts ahead of Saturday’s huge clash with Tottenham.
The gesture is part of the “Beautiful Possibilities” initiative by sponsors Chevrolet, which helps offer safer footballing environments for children.
The mascots meanwhile had their desired future careers on the back of their tops.
One youngster had “inspire with art” on their back, while another’s read “heal injured athletes”.
United‘s players then removed their jerseys and presented them to the mascots as a memento from their once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Also prior to kick-off, Man United and Tottenham‘s players held a minute’s silence to remember those who gave their lives in armed conflict.
United have partaken in the mascot-shirt gesture before.
Last season, the Old Trafford club wore the jerseys and walked out with mascots – who that time wore the players’ names – against Leicester.
Also that game, United had held a week of activities for youngsters on the scheme.
