Manchester United Superfan Andy Tate Is Set To Race In The Grand National

Manchester United superfan Andy Tate is getting ready to race in The Grand National this weekend.

Best known for his legendary rant on former Red Devils boss David Moyes during his time at Old Trafford, Mr Tate has been spending plenty of months training for the upcoming event.

The United supporter has been picking up lessons from his tutor, Nick Scholfield, and is excited to make his spectacular debut at Aintree.

"Being put through his paces in a gruelling fitness regime, Tate has had to adapt his diet and exercise in able to compete with the world's top jockeys," Oddschecker said after catching up with the man himself.

"No more pie and beans for the northern lad, Tate is now living solely off one meal per day, consisting of a chicken salad and croutons."

Tate no longer feels the need to speak his mind on Moyes, José Mourinho or Louis van Gaal, especially with permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær at the wheel.

While the man himself once cried out for the United board to "Give it Giggsy 'til the end of the season" in the past, Tate made an appearance on the FullTimeDEVILS YouTube channel last month and said that he wanted the 46-year-old Norwegian to receive the role permanently.

The Grand National will be held on Saturday 6th April.
