Manchester United reportedly donated shirts for the funeral of 21-year-old supporter Chris Rose.

Rose, who was known by his friends as 'Ginge', tragically passed away last week, and after getting in touch with the Premier League champions, Rose's friends and family received 21 shirts from the club.

"Ginge was a big Man United fan, and most of us are too," quotes family friend Tony Dayson as saying. "I can't thank them enough for doing this in memory of a great young person."

All the shirts had number four and 'Ginge' emblazoned on the back, with 'RIP' written on the bottom.
