When Jonny Evans played on loan at Sunderland, his mum and dad would make the journey up to the North East to watch him play…
…apart from when United were playing at home, and they would take the season tickets they’ve had for years to Old Trafford to watch the reds play.
David Beckham, who was brought up a United fan by dad Ted, reckons that his father will be cheering on AC Milan this Wednesday.
“It was a very emotional night for me playing against United in Milan, but going back to Old Trafford is going to be even more so,” said Beckham. “The United fans were unbelievable in the first leg and I thank them for that. It was amazing to hear their chants. Without a doubt it will be emotional to hear that from a crowd of more than 70,000 at Old Trafford. I had family with me in Milan and they’ll be going to Old Trafford. My dad’s a big United fan and this is probably the only time he won’t want them to win!”
Doubt it, Dave!
