Mason Mount praised for refusing to sign Man United shirts after being hounded by ‘supporters’

Mason Mount, the recent acquisition of Manchester United in a £55 million transfer from Chelsea, has received praise for his decision to decline signing shirts after being hounded by individuals claiming to be fans.

Mount, who has inherited the prestigious No.7 shirt previously worn by Cristiano Ronaldo, made his debut for Manchester United in a 2-0 victory over Leeds United during a pre-season friendly in Oslo. D

espite the attention and requests, Mount chose not to sign shirts, displaying a strong stance in the face of overwhelming demands.

Ahead of kick-off, Erik ten Hag explained how Mount will fit into his plans, telling MUTV: “I am sure he will contribute to the success of Manchester United because he is a quality player.

“In midfield you have to attack but you also have to defend. He will bring dynamic into our game. We need more dynamic in that midfield department.”

A video circulating on social media shows Mason Mount being approached by a group of individuals holding shirts for him to sign.

The exact location of the incident is unknown, but Mount is seen by himself, wearing his Manchester United tracksuit, in a dimly lit car park.

As the group approaches him, Mount can be heard saying, “You know I ain’t signing it” and apologizing with the words, “Sorry lads.”

This has frustrated those who had been waiting for his signature. The video has sparked discussion and reactions among fans and viewers on social media platforms.

They try and plead with the England international, but he remains firm and tells them, “I haven’t signed for the last three days so I don’t know why you lot keep coming back”.

But United fans have supported Mount’s decision to not provide his autograph and are convinced the people in the video were simply trying to make money as opposed to being genuine supporters.

One said: “Go on Mason lad.”

A second wrote: “Extremely weird to follow a footballer like that.”

A third opined: “This is one reason why you see clips of players just walking past crowds going into hotels etc.”

A fourth stated: “The account filming is called Icons 4 U. We all know why they’re chasing people for signatures.”

Another had the same view, writing: “See it OT every week same faces trying to get signatures and then flog them on the internet. Well done Mase.”

A fifth fumed: “This is so cringe, grown men begging for an autograph and also doing it in a really uncomfortable and intrusive way. It’s clearly to sell on and rip off real fans. Fair play to Mason for rejecting them, can’t be having that especially in his personal space.

A final user agreed: “This is not only embarrassing from these signature touts following him in a car park in the dark to get a shirt signed but also scary too…. I think Mase handled this very well & I completely agree with him.”
