Perth Glory coach reveals most of his players support Manchester United

With Manchester United set to kick off their pre-season on Saturday 13th July, Perth Glory coach Tony Popovic has revealed that most of his players support the Red Devils.

Popovic has revealed many members of his first-team squad support United and he is worried there could be a bit of 'stage fright' if their mentality is not right. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to name a strong side for the first match of pre-season this weekend with most of his stars having resumed training.

Speaking ahead of the match, Popovic warned his side not to get carried away by the moment, "I'm sure that there is time to admire them and consider who you played against after the game. But we don't want them doing that during the match.

"We've got players here in our group that get disappointed when Manchester United doesn't win, and they stay up and watch the games. I've got one of my sons (Gabriel) that does not miss a game of Manchester United. That just shows how big and special they are as a club.

"It (playing against United) is something these players haven't experienced and may not experience again. So you want to make the most of it. You don't want to get stage fright on the day. I really want the players to be relaxed and enjoy it and also be focused and go out there and show our football."
