Ghanaian international Andy Kyere Yiadom is elated ahead of Reading’s FA Cup game with Manchester United on Saturday.
Yiadom will lead the Royals to Old Trafford as they hope to cause a major upset in the competition. He mentioned that he has fond memories at the Manchester United Stadium and that will urge him on
“I was fortunate enough to play there before – Old Trafford is a massive stadium and it takes you away. So I’m looking forward to it – and whoever starts on Saturday has to go out there and give their all,” said Yiadom.
“I remember going there four years ago feeling excited – I hadn’t played there before. Those are good nerves – feeling excited. And if I play on Saturday, I think I’ll get the same kind of feeling. That feeling can give you an extra push to go and do well and run that extra yard.
“We started very well when we went there in 2019. But you need to take your chances when you play against a good team like Man United. We didn’t do that, and unfortunately we lost.”
The last time the two teams met in the FA Cup was in 2-19 where Manchester United won 2-0.
