Man Utd fan dies just 45 minutes after Rashford and Lingard grant last wish

Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Timothy Fosu-Mensah paid a surprise visit to Paddy Lawler after Lingard’s cousin saw a heart-breaking appeal on Facebook.Paddy’s grandaughter, Kayleigh, had described how the 73-year-old had desperately tried to keep his eyes open to watch his team play Man City on Saturday.

The players were so moved they agreed to visit Paddy at home in Wythenshawe, Manchester.


Less than an hour later, he died.

His widow Eunice, 71, told the Sun: “They were such nice young men to go to that trouble and it is a huge comfort to us to know he died happy.”

In her original post, Kayleigh, 27, wrote: “We asked him the other day if he would like to do anything before his time comes and he said to meet the team.”
