Manchester United’s most recent signing, Zoran Tosic, has confessed that he has been a supporter of the club since our Champions League final in 1999. As one of probably many fans from around the world, Tosic’s attention turned to us after seeing Solskjaer’s winner hit the net.
The Serbian winger had just turned 12-years-old back then and told his coach that one day he would be playing for United.
“From the moment I watched United win the Champions League in 1999 I was a fan,” said Tosic. “When I was a kid I saw a picture of the national team in the changing room and I said to the coach ‘I am going to stand there one day and I am going to be a Manchester United player, those are my two wishes’. It is great to have Nemanja Vidic at United. He lives five minutes away. I knew him from before playing for Serbia and we spend a lot of time together. Playing with the likes of Wayne Rooney is brilliant and Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are fantastic with me.”
