Luke Shaw Gives His Match Shirt To A Young Fan In Class Gesture
Manchester United fans had a nightmare away trip at West Ham United, other than a young girl who received Luke Shaw's match shirt.

At least her day was slightly brightened after being handed a nice match souvenir.

Unfortunately for United fans, Shaw was unable to influence the game against West Ham. United lost 3-1 at London Stadium, and continue to languish in the table.
Shaw's gesture was easily the best thing he did.
It's a small offering from a footballer's perspective but it goes a long way.
Earlier in the season, Everton's £50 million signing Richarlison made a supporter burst into tears. The Brazilian won the hearts of many when he gave away his match shirt to a fan in the crowd.
Thaynan Leite Correa was the lucky 9-year-old who now owns the former Watford player's debut shirt. The youngster couldn't contain his emotions seconds later, breaking down in tears of joy.
What a moment.

Class. Made his day.
There's a back story as to why Salah gave his shirt to that specific kid. He's also featured on the clubs match program.
