At a press conference after Wednesday’s game, he said: “I have three idols in my life. Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Julia Roberts. These are my three idols.

“Julia Roberts came to Manchester years ago – not in the 90s when Sir Alex (Ferguson) was winning titles and titles and titles. It came at the time when we were better than United, those four or five years, right?

“And she attended Man United. She didn’t come to us. So even if I win the Champions League, it doesn’t compare to the fact that Julia Roberts came to Manchester and didn’t visit us.

“Even if I win the Champions League it will not compare to this disappointment I had.”
