Manchester United released a picture on their official Twitter account on Monday which has attracted attention.
The picture featured Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley holding blue and white footy shirts. The picture can with the message:
Danny Welbeck and @tomclevz23 are backing Wythenshawe Amateurs’ bid to win an FA grant.
On the Red Devils website there is more information about the project. “Manchester United is backing local side Wythenshawe Amateurs FC in their bid to win a £100,000 grant from the Football Association.”
With David Moyes’ side in the doldrums after their defeat to Stoke last Saturday, the sight of Welbeck and Cleverley holding non-United football shirts instantly sparked a slew of jokes.
Below are the best comments on the new Manchester United picture.
@ManUtd was hoping Cleverley had signed for them. Gutted.
