Phil Jones does something wonderful for young fan that had his shirt stolen
What a hero.
Typically, at the final home fixture of the season, teams will do a lap of honour and applaud the fans. And ok, a sixth place finish for Manchester United might not be the biggest thing to celebrate (though there might a Europa League trophy to come) – but for one young United fan it seemed to be a special day.
Mum Claire Woods’ son got Phil Jones’ shirt after their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace today. What should have been a brilliant moment for him was ruined however, after an older kid kicked him and stole the shirt.
Claire tweeted about the incident, with a photo of her distraught son.
But the story has a happy ending – Phil Jones himself saw the tweet, and replied. He told Claire to DM him, and he sort her son out with another shirt.
Sorry to hear that. If you can follow me I will direct message you and sort one out for him.
