Manchester United's previous UEFA Super Cup encounters

  Manchester United's previous UEFA Super Cup encounters Manchester United’s season officially kicks off on Tuesday night, as the Reds travel to Macedonia to face Champions League winners Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup. After a promising pre-season tour of the United States and two more productive friendlies in Europe, José Mourinho’s side are ready to take their impressive form into competitive action, and Zinedine Zidane’s side will certainly provide a stern test in Skopje. United will be missing a couple of key men though, with Eric Bailly and Phil Jones both suspended for this showpiece encounter. Bailly has had his initial one-match ban for violent conduct in the Reds’ Europa League semi-final against Celta extended to three games, while Jones is serving a two-match ban for insulting a UEFA doping control officer following United’s victory over Ajax in the Europa League final. This will be the Reds’ fourth appearance in the Super Cup final – on the previous three occasions, they have competed, firstly as UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup winners, as well as Champions League winners. However, they have only come away with the trophy once in those encounters.

Noory's family were part of the huge wave of migrants from South Asia, the Middle East and Africa hoping to start new lives in western Europe in recent years, but they got stuck in Serbia after the so-called "Balkan route" was shut down in 2016.

The boy's gift for art was spotted during language and painting workshops in Belgrade that were organised by local aid groups for refugees and migrants.

"We quickly realised how talented he was and sent him to a painting school as well as a three-month photography workshop, so this is a retrospective of what he learnt there," Edin Sinanovic from the Refugees Foundation, a local NGO, told AFP.

In addition to holding his first exhibition, "Farhad wanted to help someone, so he chose to dedicate it to a six-year-old Serbian boy who needs funds for his therapy after brain cancer," Sinanovic said.

BELGRADE , Serbia (AP) — A 10-year-old migrant from Afghanistan , who has been nicknamed " Little Picasso ," is using his first ever exhibition to help another boy in need. Farhad Nouri's drawings and photographs were put on display Wednesday in what was also his charity event to raise money

Being kind

Farhad Noory said he was raising money for a cancer-stricken Serbian boy with his paintings because © Provided by AFP Farhad Noory said he was raising money for a cancer-stricken Serbian boy with his paintings because "we need to be kind" Dressed in a black T-shirt and jeans, Noory, who speaks just a little English, admitted that he was "feeling stressed" at his first exhibition.

The smiling young artist said he wanted to help a child in difficulty because "we need to be kind", and he hoped to meet the boy for whom he was fundraising.

In aid of the boy's therapy, he sold his photographs of everyday life in the city, and prints of his paintings, for 250 to 800 dinars (2-7 euros, $2.5-8).

At the one-day exhibition in a cafe in central Belgrade, extra donations were collected in an old guitar case.

Noory was to keep the proceeds from his original paintings, which were auctioned with a starting price of 2,500 dinars.

His family are among the 4,500 migrants currently staying in 18 state-run camps in Serbia. Some 40 percent of them are children, according to Ivan Miskovic from the government's refugee agency.

"They have taken a long, difficult, serious and dangerous trip," Miskovic said, pledging to help Noory "develop his gift".

The youngster said he would like to go to Switzerland to study painting and languages, and the official expressed hope that the migrants would eventually reach their preferred destinations.

"As long as they are in Serbia we will do our best to provide them with everything we can," Miskovic said.
