Man Utd stars pay tribute to Kobe Bryant following NBA star’s tragic death

As the sporting world tries to come to terms with the crash that claimed the life of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, fans have begun paying tribute to the NBA legend.

Bryant was one of nine killed when a helicopter crashed in California on Sunday morning. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, tragically lost her life too.

The five-time NBA champion was 41-years-old at the time of his death which I think we can all agree is far too young to die.

He now leaves a loving family behind, as well as millions of sporting fans who see him as one of the biggest figures in sport!

A flurry of reactions have even come from the Manchester United dressing room.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and David de Gea have all posted social media tributes to Bryant following last night’s news.

In times like this, it can be hard to find words that justify how sad the loss of someone’s life can be — and in the most tragic of circumstances.

See below for a pick of the tributes from a number of United players.
