Manchester united coach, Jose Mourinho made one lucky Manchester United fan’s day on Tuesday night after giving away his UEFA Super Cup runners up medal.
After a match game Mourinho removed his UEFA Super cup silver medal to a Nigerian kid, Deji in the stands.
“Sometimes when I win I don’t keep the medal, so imagine when I lose,” he explained in a press conference after the match.
“For me the medal would go to some place in my house, and for that kid it’s for sure something he will keep and to remember.
“It was a little kid with a Man United shirt. I have no idea where he comes from.
“I think for the kid, it’s something he will never forget.
“For me, medals – I repeat – when I win they don’t mean much. Imagine when I lose.”
Manchester United asked on twitter to know who Mourinho gave his medal to.
The club wrote on twitter;
A top gesture from Jose Mourinho to give his super cup runners medal to a young fan. Anyone know the lucky recipient? Please get in touch.
Deji’s brother tweeted his photo of him smiling with the medal.

Good on you, José Mourinho!
