The players brought some Christmas cheer to local youngsters at two Manchester hospitals on Thursday.
The first-team squad split into two and headed to the Young Oncology Unit at The Christieand the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital armed with hundreds of United goodies ranging from iPads to cuddly toys which had been wrapped by the club’s young players and staff at Carrington.
The Reds’ young fans were over the moon to come face-to-face with their heroes who set about signing and posing for photographs with as many patients and staff members as they could.
“It’s not easy for kids who are in hospital over Christmas and it was nice to be able to put a smile on their faces,” said Wayne Rooney, who visited The Christie with team-mates Tom Cleverley, Jonny Evans and Ryan Giggs. “It was also good to chat to the parents and the doctors and nurses who do so much great work in looking after the children.”

Anders Lindegaard has signed a new four-year deal with Manchester United, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2015/16 season.
“I’m very pleased to have signed a new contract. I’m glad and proud that the manager has shown the confidence he has in me by giving me a new deal. There is nowhere in the world I would rather be than right here. The competition for places is tough, as it should be in a club like this. It only makes us better as individuals and, more importantly, stronger as a team. It’s what I have dreamt of all my life and nothing makes me more proud than wearing the Manchester United badge.”
