Manchester United fanatics Danny Hodgson and his father Peter have met with club legend Denis Irwin ahead of the English football giant’s blockbuster preseason fixture in July. 

Denis Irwin is the most successful football player to come out of Ireland and played for 12 years at Old Trafford, taking out 19 trophies in his career.

In September 2021 Danny was king hit after a night out in Northbridge and not expected to survive. At the time, all travellers to WA had to quarantine for a fortnight – so his parents travelled to WA not knowing if they would see their son again.

While he was in a coma, some of his favourite Manchester United players sent videos of support to Danny and his family.

Fast forward to this April and Danny is now out of hospital and well into his recovery.

Danny, his dad Peter and partner Jess enjoyed a private behind the scenes stadium tour and lunch at City View Café all topped off with meeting Denis! 

We are looking forward to seeing him back when the team arrives in July!
