I’m so unbelievably proud of this man. A shy but stubborn Norwegian. With all the shit that’s been thrown at him lately, he’s still standing tall AND strong, fighting for this club with all that he’s got. He loves United, and he deserves to be supported.— Maren 🇳🇴 (@footballqueeen) December 7, 2019
