Ulaanbaatar, May 29, 2024 /MONTSAME/. Ochirvaani Batbold, a devoted fan of the English Premier League's “Manchester United”, arrived at his dream destination a few days ago, stepping on the pitch he had longed for, and met with legendary player  Wayne Rooney.

Ochirvaani's journey began in May, 2023. By July of 2023, an article about the Mongolian fan's journey was published on Manchester United's official website. The article highlighted "A Mongolian Manchester United fan is aiming to cycle all the way from his home country to Old Trafford, to fulfill a lifelong dream of watching the Reds play." He fulfilled his dream, met the legendary player of the “Red Devils” Wayne Rooney, and received an invitation to play at Old Trafford Stadium.

He shared this on his social media, "I feel like I'm dreaming. Please, no one wake me up. Six hours ago on Instagram, I posted a picture saying I am currently living my dream, but my dream is not 100 percent fulfilled yet. I posted a picture with the caption "One day, I will play football at Old Trafford". Three hours after the post, I received a WhatsApp message. When I checked, it was a message from Manchester United.

-Do you want to play football at Old Trafford?

-Yes, I really want to.

-We invite you to the show match at Old Trafford on Thursday. Due to your efforts, genuine support, and influence in the community, you have been invited to participate in this match."

On May 30, 2024, Ochirvaani will play at Old Trafford and fulfill his lifelong dream.
