Manchester United Instagram make allegiances clear ahead of City v Barça, wishing Gerard Pique ‘Good luck’
It’s the age-old debate: do you let go club rivalries to support your country in the Champions League?
The question varies from country to country, though in England fans generally support their own, aside from in extreme rival cases.
But Man United have made their allegiances clear ahead of t0night’s crunch showdown at the Etihad between city rivals City and Barcelona, posting a nostalgic picture of former player Gerard Pique, along with the message (and tagging!):
‘‘Ex-Red Gerard Pique is back in town for tonight’s Champions League clash between Manchester City and Barcelona. Good luck, @3gerardpique.”
A former player who left 4 years ago and who only made 12 league appearances in his United apprenticeship: a bit of a tenuous link!
Never mind that they smashed you in two Champions League finals eh, United?
