Thai cave boys meet Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho



The Thai football team rescued from flooded caves earlier this year has met Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho ahead of a Premier League game this weekend.

There were gasps of excitement and cheers as the boys, aged 11 to 17, from the Wild Boars football team met the Portuguese star on Saturday afternoon.

Their visit comes three months after they spent 18 days stuck in a cave complex in northern Thailand after it flooded, trapping them inside.

On hearing of their rescue Manchester United invited the young players to visit Old Trafford.

A video shared by the club on Saturday showed the group of 12 boys and their coach arriving at Carrington where they were all given a hug by Mourinho.

Wrapped up warm in Man Utd gear they then got to step onto the famous pitch at Old Trafford.

It is understood the youngsters will watch the Premier League game against Everton at 4pm on Sunday from the directors’ box.

When the boys were rescued England defender Kyle Walker posted a picture of one of the boys, who was wearing an England shirt, saying he would like to send them all shirts.
