Jadon Sancho scored Manchester United’s first goal of the game in the 2–0 win against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League on Thursday.
The 22-year-old celebrated his third goal of the season by holding personalized shin-pads — and there’s a wonderful story behind the gesture.
Earlier this season, a young Man United fan gifted the special shin-pads to the player when he was on of the way out of Old Trafford after a game.
Sancho promised the lad that ‘those were going to be his new shin-pads’. And the England international kept his word, which should mean the world to the boy.
