Hargreaves: My Chant Makes Me Laugh

Owen Hargreaves joined United as a highly rated player, after being shunned by England fans for years. Sir Alex Ferguson had been chasing him for a number of years, but finally got his man last summer.

Hargreaves scored our winner against Arsenal just weeks before the end of the season, as well as putting away a penalty in the European Cup final. There’s no denying he has the United quality.

However, his injuries have prevented us from seeing him as much as we’d like to, with his persistent tendinitis problem.

Still, he is loved by our fans, and even got a chant dedicated to him whilst in Moscow for the Champions League final.

“I’ve heard it, yeah,” Hargreaves said. “A friend of Scholesy’s, a massive United fan, phoned me while I was on holiday in the summer and sang it on my answerphone! The first time I heard it was on the way back from Moscow. We were at the airport and it was a bit of a trek to the departure gate. There were a few fans about and they started singing it. Me and Sheasy just looked at each other and burst out laughing.”

Great chant, shame we pinched it from West Ham!

    Of all the United players, he looks like one of the best to have a sense of humour that matches his chant.
