 9 years, 1 month ago 1 Comment

We’re never too far away from Manchester United supporters (no matter how hard we try) so it’s obvious that the club with the most fans worldwide would boast an army of famous Manchester United supporters. We already know that ginger lothario Mick Hucknall is a red and that smug Irish actor whose name we can’t remember, so let’s dig a little deeper.

We all have that mate who is a ‘Man U fan’ (because his Grandfather was from Salford, honest) until the going gets tough – and then the affection for his supposed beloved club crumbles like Massimo Taibi. Let’s see if we can spot the celebrity version of the dreaded glory supporter…

“Yes, I became a Manchester United fan. I know that seems stereotypical — as an American, as soon as you get into football, you start liking Manchester United. But it wasn’t David Beckham. I met Alan Smith and he invited me to a match and I fell in love with the whole experience. I can’t think of a faithful as strong as the Manchester United fans.”
