Manchester United shared videos and photographs of the meet and greet sessions of the Wild Boars boys with Jose Mourinho and the club’s star players.

It must have been a special day for the boys of Wild Boars football team. From being trapped in a cave in Thailand for more than two weeks to reaching the heights of Old Trafford, they have covered quite a distance.

During the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, footballing audience was half glued to tracking the news of the wild boars football team, who were trapped in a cave. In an operation that went on for over two weeks, the rescue of these boys with all of them alive and healthy was termed miraculous. Such was the impact of their story that French superstar Paul Pogba dedicated his World Cup trophy to the strength shown by these young boys.

Since coming out of that cave, the Wild Boars have recuperated, played football matches again, been to the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires and have now made it in Old Trafford.

It must be a dream come true for them!

As the young boys reached Manchester United, club manager Jose Mourinho was there to welcome them and greet them and the team was smiling from ear-to-ear shaking hands and meeting one of the most successful managers in club football.

In a video posted by Manchester United on their social media handles, Mourinho can be seen meeting the boys.

After the meet and greet session with the manager, the Wild Boars made their way into the dressing room, touched and posed with some jerseys and then advanced to the historic ground.
