The Red Devils will face Fulham, who are 12th in the standings, six behind them, on February 24, the day Paddy Power will hand out the limited edition scarves.

Speaking of the scarves, spokesman Paddy Power said: “As Manchester United fans stand, Sir Jim Ratcliffe could be their biggest signing.”

“It’s a shame he’s a 71-year-old Chelsea season ticket holder and not a decent centre-back.

“Half and half scarves always seemed insignificant to me, but this quarter and three quarter scarf celebrates a potentially iconic moment in United’s history.

‘Iconic because it will mark the resurgence of the fallen giant… or simply usher in a new era of pranks. “I know what I expect.”

Man United fans have been seen attending games in non-traditional colors to make a statement. They have been photographed wearing yellow and green scarves to protest against the Glazer family’s ownership.

They have swapped their red scarves for yellow and green ones to pay homage to the old days of the club, originally founded as Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club in 1878.

Newton Heath played in yellow and green during its 24 years of existence before the club finally changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to Old Trafford eight years later.

Manchester United’s current fan base has decided to return to the gold and green as they feel Newton Heath had better values ​​as the club is populated by railway workers full of passion for the game.

The decision to represent the Newton Heath color came as United fans sought to make a statement against the Glazer family, who they believe has been killing the club.
