Poor United… Louis van Gaal’s club are described as ‘uglier than the back of a fridge’…
Edurne Garcia, the long-term girlfriend of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, has hilariously dubbed the club, and the city, “uglier than the back of a fridge”, in an extremely outspoken interview.
The 29-year-old singer, who will represent Spain at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, revealed that the only reason she puts up with it is because her hubby plays there, and she wants to stand by him.
Garcia, who has been with the United stopper for five years, told Spanish TV: “It’s not very nice, that’s for sure,” when asked whether she wanted to backtrack on her ‘fridge’ comment.
“You have to hunt out specific places, the nicer places,” she added. “But even then Spain is nicer. The reason I like it is because David’s there. With him being there, everything looks wonderful.”
Her comments, which were reported by the Daily Mirror, have also increased speculation that the 24-year-old will quit the Old Trafford club at the end of the season, with Real Madrid said to be interested.
