Former Manchester United defender, Wes Brown, comments:“It has been great to be back in India after a few years’ break due to the pandemic. I loved my time playing football in India and it is always great to see how much passion our fans here have for the club."

“Thank you to all the fans who attended today. We’re a long way from home and their support means a lot to everyone at Manchester United,”  Wes Brown said.
