Louis Saha: “Grand National was part of the culture at Manchester United”
Louis Saha spoke to BoyleSports this week, firstly discussing the Aintree Grand National.
The former Manchester United & Everton player spoke about his pick for this year’s race, as well as detailing who of his former teammates also enjoyed the famous horse racing event.
I’ve chosen Blaklion – I’m a Leo so I’m hoping it will be lucky.
“At Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, John O’Shea and Wes Brown were absolute fanatics. They loved getting dressed up and their wives did too. I can remember all through the year thinking about those moments as it’s such an event.
John O’Shea was the one who was into it the most
“…but Wazza and a lot of players like Darren Fletcher really liked it too; it was part of the culture at Manchester United.
“At Everton the local lads like Leon Osman and Phil Jagielka all loved the Grand National. I think there were even a few part owners of horses.”
