What happened? Hollywood star Roberts visited the Manchester United players who won 2-0 against Arsenal at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles. Roberts has revealed several times that she is a die-hard United fan, much to the chagrin of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
What they posted:
They said: Roberts later chatted with club media and revealed her excitement: “I was excited, I couldn’t sleep last night and now we’re 2-0 up so it’s great,” the Hollywood star explained. It (the first half) was really exciting, I forgot how much I was hooked watching them play, it’s so much fun.
Something more: “(We’re) very excited (to reunite with the team),” she told the club at halftime. They are part of our family’s history as passionate sports fans and now the kids are all grown up, they were little when we first met everyone, so it was great to see some people we know and meet some new players.
Gossip: Guardiola, a die-hard fan of the superstar, had earlier revealed that he was deeply saddened by the Citizens’ victory over United in the last decade after Roberts visited their rivals at Old Trafford.
