VIDEO: Iconic ‘Singhs’ Spotted at Manchester United Match After Nearly a Decade

Published 08/14/2021, 2:59 PM EDT


No other clubs have a diversified fan base like Manchester United. The club rose to prominence under Sir Alex Ferguson’s incredible managerial reign, which spanned for over two decades. However, because of poor performances and mismanagement, the club could not win trophies in recent seasons. But, the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has propelled United to the top of the league. Moreover, familiar fans are also coming to Old Trafford to support their team after nearly a decade as the ‘Singh’ brothers made an appearance during United’s 5-1 victory against Leeds.

The ‘Singh’ brothers are back

It has been a busy transfer window for United after they finally landed Jadon Sancho. Moreover, the arrival of Raphael Varane speaks volumes about their intentions, heading to the new Premier League campaign. As the club announced Varane at the beginning of the game, the camera panned out to familiar faces in the stands. The ‘Singh’ brothers have returned and seem to enjoy the new-look United.

It was customary for SAF to shake their hands before the match in a superstitious procedure. The success was there. No one can deny that. Despite that, the poor performances from the club did not bind well with many fans. However, there seems to be a change of trend in Old Trafford, as fans are hopeful of a fantastic season after the acquisition of Sancho and Varane.

In the meantime, the match against Leeds United may have been the perfect dress rehearsal for the next 37 games in the league. Ironically, did the ‘Singh’ brothers propel them onto an incredible performance? Let’s leave it at that.

How dangerous is Manchester United this season?

The signings of Sancho and Varane will automatically improve their chances of lifting the title. Leeds United tasted defeat in the first game of the season after a sensational performance from the Red Devils. Bruno Fernandes scored a clinical hat trick while Paul Pogba conjured up four assists. The squad looks more balanced as players like Shaw and Maguire are continuing their form from last season and the Euros.

Despite not signing a striker, United has made two incredible signings to fill the gaps in the team. By signing Sancho, the weight is off Fernandes to be the sole-creator of his team. Adding Sancho to the mix would do them a world of good. Plus, the performance of Paul Pogba in the game would send encouragement for fans like the ‘Singh’ brothers.

Even though they have improved their squad from last season, United needs to prove their mettle against the top teams in the country. Their noisy neighbors have been the most successful club in Manchester for the past 10 years. Likewise, Virgil van Dijk’s return to Liverpool would improve their defense. After winning the Champions League, Chelsea is knocking on everyone’s doors to challenge for the league title.
