Russian football fans have a pretty awful reputation, with many associating them with violence – as witnessed at Euro 2016.

However, it is wrong to tar them all with the same brush.

Last night, FC Rostov supporters gave Manchester United’s away fans a warm welcome ahead of their Europa League tie, handing out blankets with a kind message stitched into them.

“GENTLEFAN. RUSSIAN WARM WELCOME.”

United secured a 1-1 draw, bagging a valuable away goal thanks to Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
