RB Leipzig midfielder, Amadou Haidara has come out to say that Manchester United was his favourite team as a kid. He recently revealed that he is also a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo amid reports linking him with a move to Old Trafford.
According to him, he also liked players like Paul Scholes, Patrice Evra, Edwin van der Sar and Anderson, but all the reports surrounding his move to MUFC are just rumours for now.
Haidara added that it is true that Ralf Rangnick played a very good role in his RB Leipzig career and he is forever grateful to him.
His words, “Everyone had a favourite team as a kid. Mine was Manchester United.”
“I was a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, I liked Paul Scholes, Patrice Evra, Edwin van der Sar, Anderson.”
“But if you want to talk to me about rumours: I’m at Leipzig and I feel good.”
“Yes, Ralf plays a very big role in my career. Don’t forget, when Leipzig wanted to get me, I tore my cruciate ligament.”
“But Ralf said that I should come anyway. I wouldn’t have expected that back then.”
“I’m very grateful to him because he really wanted me and gave me great confidence as a coach in Leipzig.”
“He later told me to stay with RB and trust that Julian Nagelsmann would make me better.”
