For many, Manchester United’s narrow 2-1 win over Leicester City will be forgotten in a matter of weeks but for 3-year-old supporter Jordy Scholes Bell, it was a night he will remember for the rest of his life.

It was a dream start for Jose Mourinho’s side. Daniel Amartey handled in the box and a penalty was given. Alexis Sanchez was desperate to take the spot-kick but captain Paul Pogba eventually slotted away in the third minute after the longest run up in history.

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup winner, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most.


Proud father, Robert Bell, posted footage of his son celebrating the goal and his reaction is absolutely priceless. It was a moment Jordy will never forget:

“I ran the London marathon in April past and it fell on the same weekend as the FA Cup Semi Final against Spurs, so I took him there and that was his first game. Ever since he had been asking me to take him to see United and Paul Pogba.” Robert told SPORTbible.

“He was really excited about it, counting down how many more sleeps for weeks beforehand. We planned to go to Old Trafford early yesterday to try to get Pogba’s autograph before the players went off to their hotel, but had a delay with the car hire at Manchester Airport and missed the team.

“He absolutely loves Pogba and was insistent on getting his name printed on the new kit. I think his reaction showed what it meant to him. He’s still talking about it now.”

United went on to score another after Luke Shaw bagged his first senior goal in over 100 appearances, and despite a late header from Jamie Vardy, it was a mere consolation as Mourinho’s side secured all three points at Old Trafford.

Just look at his reaction!

What a moment!
