Tell him you’ve played 25 games and to give you a car’. “I said to the manager, ‘Listen boss. I’ve played 25 games now, I think I’m fairly established. What about a club car?’
“Truth be told Halfway through the sentence I could see his face changing, and as soon as I said club car, I could see his face was red and he just started swearing at me. “He said, ‘Club car? You won’t even get a club bike. Get out of this office now, before I throw you out.’,” he told the Official Man United Podcast.
