Episode notes

Former Manchester United midfielder Sammy McIlroy joins the Podcast this week, looking back on an Old Trafford career that lasted over a decade. 

The ex-Northern Ireland international spoke about how he idolised George Best when growing up in Belfast and how he regards his compatriot as the best to ever play the game.

Sammy also spoke about a car accident he was involved in during his playing days - an incident that not only threatened his playing career but also his life.

Helen, Sam and Maysie also read out your emails at the end of the episode. If you'd like to write to the only official Manchester United Podcast then e-mail [email protected]
