Stone Roses bassist Mani revealed how strong his Manchester United roots go and nearly ended up being named after a club legend.
Mani joined Jonny Owen for his new show on talkSPORT on Sunday and talked about his love for the Red Devils.
It is a passion that runs deeply and he was always destined to be a United supporter.
He said: “I’m a vehemently Man United supporting guy and that’s been the case since the day I was conceived. It was never going to be any other way.
“My dad wanted to call me Matthew Busby but my mum put a kibosh on that.”
The Stone Roses legend also gets to as many games possible and has been to a number of cup finals over the years.
Mani also couldn’t resist a dig at the Man City loving Gallagher brothers at the same time.
He added: “I’ve been to every virtually every cup final they’ve been to over the years.

“I’ve been to four Champions League finals, none of the Gallagher brothers can say that, can they? I’ve seen them win the European Super Cup, UEFA Cup, Cup Winners Cup, every domestic trophy known to man.
“The only thing I haven’t seen them win is the World Club Championships. After that, we’ll get on Elon Musk’s happy bus to Mars and see what the martians are saying.”
