Still looking for something on the internet to warm your heart this Valentine’s Day? Look no further than this inspiring video produced and published by the Manchester United foundation. If you pay attention to global news headlines you know what a dark and gloomy place the world is right now.
However, when you see what United stars David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic did for this young, misfortunate Red Devils supporter you’ll become reminded of all the good that exists in the world.

Samuel, who has cerebral palsy, attends the Manchester Creative and Media Academy and yet still plays the beautiful game. He’s a goalkeeper, who wears #1 just like De Gea, and his eyes widened when the Spain and United #1 gave him his gloves (autographed of course).
It was all part of a once-in-a-lifetime day Sam had the opportunity to experience at the club’s training ground. The day he’ll never forget included meeting and taking photos with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.
The youngster, who sports a United kit with Sam #1 on the back, finds his inspiration from team and tells the narrator of the video “keep going no matter what…never, never, never give up … I’m in a wheelchair and I never give up.” #UnitedandSamuel #UnitedandMe
