Schalke 04 vice-captain Benedikt Höwedes has confessed that when he plays on the PlayStation with his team mates, it’s usually the person who has Manchester United that wins.

“United are a dream team,” he said. “I will really enjoy playing them, but I don’t think we have to hide. In the past, we used to play at Old Trafford on the PlayStation. Most of the time, those that had Manchester would win…”

Höwedes has made his way through the ranks at Schalke, joining the club when he was 13 after growing up 20 miles away. He will play at the real Old Trafford on May 4th.
