A group of Manchester United fans couldn't believe their luck when the team's coach stopped and allowed them to get on the bus to meet the players and get autographs.

The small group of fans, all originally from Bulgaria, were waiting in the rain in Seattle, USA (where United are on tour) in the hope that they might steal a glimpse of their heroes as they drove past.

What they got was a lot more as they were invited on to the coach to chat with the players and get jerseys and memorabilia signed by the likes of Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

One of the fans filmed the whole incident too, so they could remember their special moment forever.

Even when they were off the bus a United official came out and gave them some merchandise to cap a memorable day.

United certainly seem right at home in Seattle - they played local MLS side the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday night with Rooney scoring a hat-trick in a 7-0 win.
