The Red Devils player thanked the supermarket for aiding in providing the vouchers to families from the neighbourhood he grew up in.
As seen in the tweet, Fosu-Mensah was pictured in the supermarket along with a representative of Vomaronline as he went about providing essential food for families in need.
Speaking about the gesture as cited in the Sun, the player’s agent Albert Kissi said:
“We received signals from Amsterdam Zuidoost that several families had to borrow money because of the corona crisis in order to do their shopping.
“Under normal circumstances, that could and should never happen.”
This is a great gesture by Fosu-Mensah and is something that is bound to help people who are struggling during this crisis.
