Manchester United squad against PSG that saw the French side exit the UCL will remain in the history books for number of reasons, one of them being the youngsters that debuted for the club, but there’s some details that came out and catching United fans in shock.
Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood had an unforgettable Wednesday night.
The 17-year-old became the youngest player to ever feature for United in the Champions League when he replaced Ashley Young in the 87th minute.
He was involved in a historic moment as Marcus Rashford fired home a dramatic injury-time penalty to send Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side into the quarter-finals.
United were without 10 first team players for the trip to the French capital leading to Greenwood and fellow youngster Tahith Chong, James Garner and Angel Gomes making the trip.
And fans have now spotted a detail on Greenwood’s shirt which shows just how unexpected his debut was as he received a late call up to the squad.
reenwood was wearing the number 54 shirt at the Parc des Princes – yet eagle-eyed supporters spotted a PSG badge on the bottom of his printed number.
The detail suggests his shirt was only printed with the Champions League lettering once already in the French capital after his late inclusion in the squad.
The academy graduate has been a star performer at age group level this season, starring for the under-18s and under 23s. He took to social media after the game to react to his debut on a night which will live long in the memory for United fans.
He wrote: “What a night, happy to make my Man Utd debut, a night to remember, a dream come true for me and my family.”
The teenager has been compared to former Red Devils striker Robin Van Persie and appears set for a big future at Old Trafford.
Now he has made his first-team arrival, he’ll perhaps have a shirt permanently prepared ready for future games after his make-shift attire on Wednesday night!
