Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has explained why gifted his medal to a young fan after Manchester United’s UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid. Mourinho gave a young boy named Deji his medal just before departing the stadium.
Asked about the gesture during the post-match press conference, Mourinho said:
“Sometimes when I win, I don’t keep the medals – so imagine when I lose!” the manager said wryly.
“For me, the medal would go to some place in my house; for that kid, it’s the moon – something to keep and remember. It was a little kid with a United shirt. I have no idea where he comes from. I think it’s something he’ll never forget.”
