Manchester United player joins eurozone collection

FEATURE - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from Manchester United has teamed up with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) on his return from Europe to collect soon-to-be obsolete currency.

The good news is that it is not too late to put these coins to work
