SINGAPORE – Manchester United’s legendary strike partners Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole are heading to Singapore as part of the club’s international fan event #ILOVEUNITED.
The event will be a three-week celebration of Manchester United fandom in Singapore, featuring locally tailored content across club channels, including a special edition of the UTD Podcast.
The Podcast will tell the story of the passion for United in Singapore, featuring first-team star Diogo Dalot alongside local fans, club ambassador Dwight Yorke and local radio host Justin Ang, a Red Devils fan for 30 years.
