I’m Always Envious Of Chelsea, Wish We (Man United) Beat Them – Tinubu

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has revealed that he is envious of Premier League side Chelsea and since he is a diehard fan of Manchester United, he always wished that the latter beats the former.

The former governor of Lagos State stated this when Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi paid him a visit at his Bourdillon, Ikoyi home in Lagos.

The China-based Mikel had visited the APC bigwig to seek his support for his talent hunt programme – Africa’s Next Football Superstar.

In a chat with The Punch, Tinubu said:

“I’m very proud and honoured to receive you (Mikel). I’m a great fan of football even though not much of a fan of your former club (Chelsea). I sincerely tried to watch Chelsea all the time you were there because you are a great talent.”

“Chelsea is not my club but he (Mikel) is my club and we will support his project. I’m a Man United fan to the core.

“Last weekend, I watched the Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea game with one eye because I’m always envious of Chelsea. I always wish we (Manchester United) beat them. I sympathise with him (Mikel), his former club had to take a hit from Tottenham.”

“When Mikel was there however, I watched Chelsea each time he was on the pitch with both eyes because he’s a great talent. It’s been a wonderful homecoming for him and we will do everything to support him.”
