Wout Weghorst proved he is a top dad as he drove into Manchester United training with an adorable picture on his dashboard. The on-loan Dutch striker, 30, was pictured arriving at Carrington in his Range Rover with a starfish and crab colored in on the dashboard in front of the wheel. It is likely that the artwork was done by one of his daughters, either four-year-old Juul or Lucie Mary Jo, who turns three in April.
The effort was met with praise from fans on social media, who are hoping it will be the catalyst to adding to his tally of one goal in 12 appearances. Weghorst recently won his first trophy of his career in the Carabao Cup final, though he was unlucky not to find the net.
The Red Devils have a busy schedule ahead as they face West Ham in the FA Cup fifth-round tomorrow and Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday. There is still a chance of a quadruple for United with a Europa League last 16 tie against Real Betis.
Weghorst’s effort is a reminder of the importance of family and how it can be a source of motivation. It is clear that the Dutchman is proud of his daughters’ artwork and wanted to give it a public showing. Hopefully, it will be the lucky charm he needs to help United achieve their goals this season.
