The 'Old Trafford Sikhs' made a comeback during Manchester United's 5-1 win against Leeds United

As fans made their comeback to the historic stadium, some very familiar faces were back.

Sparingly seen since Sir Alex Ferguson left the manager’s role, the iconic ‘Sikh fellas’ made their way back for the opening day clash against Leeds United.

Coming from a family of hardcore United fans, a group of turbaned Sikhs have been synonymous with Old Trafford for decades.

They were invariably seen sitting in the same place, right behind Sir Alex and the Manchester United bench game after game, season after season.

The legendary Scottish manager used to shake their hands as some sort of pre-match ritual.

Now they are back, and fans reckon good things are in store for United this season.

Coincidence? Nah…

Number 21 incoming?

A heavy dose of nostalgia for some

Fortress Old Trafford on the cards again?

Football. That is all.
