Young Sheff Utd fan in tears as she hands Mousset his MOTM award from Man Utd draw but he gives it to her as a present

A YOUNG Sheffield United fan was reduced to tears as presented Lys Mousset with his Man of the Match award - before he handed it straight back to her.

The Frenchman, 23, did not receive his trophy after the explosive 3-3 draw with Manchester United at Bramall Lane on Sunday.

Sheffield United decided to let one lucky fan do the honours of giving him his trophy during the launch of the club's new shop.

Amelia looked lost for words after she was informed that she would be meeting her club's star man.

After he received the award, Mousset kindly said: "Thank you, but I'm going to give the award to Amelia.

"She can have it."

Amelia simply responded: "I haven't got any words."

She smiled as she posed for a picture alongside Mousset before she tried to hand the trophy back to him.

He replied: "No, I said you can have it. It's yours."

The heartwarming moment was caught on camera and the Blades sent fans wild when it was posted to Twitter.

Wendy Hearnshaw replied: "I want to thank everyone involved, especially Lys for making my daughter's year.

"I can tell you she is not normally stuck for words but got a bit star struck and is still on cloud nine. Many many thanks."

And another fan replied: "Absolutely class by everyone... Lovely to see and what a day for Amelia."

Mousset was voted MOTM after bagging an assist and scoring against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
