Paddy Power exclusive: The man who wants all English teams to do well in Europe

He's paying the price for his comments in 2018.

Comments

The Champions League final is here, with Liverpool facing off against Spanish giants Real Madrid in a rematch of their 2018 final.

Many Premier League fans – especially Everton supporters, as Paddy Power revealed earlier this week – will be crossing their fingers and praying for a Real Madrid masterclass.

NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?

It’s a bizarre time when Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton fans can come together for one cause – to stop Liverpool winning the treble this season.

But what about football fans who want all English sides to do well in Europe?

Paddy Power sent a camera crew to check in on one of those solitary supporters – and it was a tough watch.

The United fan has been haunted by his comments made in a pub in 2018 where he revealed he wanted Liverpool to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Four years later, he’s still paying the price.

His family won’t speak to him. He doesn’t have any friends. He spends Christmas alone. He got cancelled.

Even Piers Morgan thought he overstepped the mark and that’s saying a lot, isn’t it.

The coronavirus pandemic changed his outlook on life and the United supporter reconnected with his family and was once again invited to dinners and parties.

How did he respond to his family welcoming him back into the fold after his horrifying comments in 2018? He took to Instagram and posted a picture of his dinner, captioned ‘nom nom nom’.

The moral of the story is that some people just can’t be trusted.

He’ll be watching Liverpool v Real Madrid alone on Saturday night but who will he be supporting? We all know the answer.
