Francis Uzoho gave the most wholesome interview after Man Utd game, he was absolutely buzzing

Francis Uzoho gave the most wholesome interview after Man Utd game, he was absolutely buzzing

Uzoho is a lifelong Manchester United fan.

Omonia Nicosia goalkeeper Francis Uzoho gave a sensational interview following his side's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in the Europa League.

Scott McTominay's injury-time winner gave United a vital win in Group E, but it wasn't without struggle.

Uzoho started the game after an injury to number one Fabiano earlier in the week. Against his boyhood side, Uzoho put in an astonishing performance by making 12 saves.

The 23-year-old spoke to BT Sport at full-time, with his enthusiasm clear to see.

Despite having a point snatched away at the last second, Uzoho was still buzzing after playing at Old Trafford for the first time in his career.

When asked if he was upset at the result, Uzoho replied: "I am not disappointed because we had a good game.

"I would've preferred to get at least a point, but I'm happy because it's not an easy stadium to play in with these big players. I'm happy in general!"

When asked if he was a United fan, the Nigeria international let out a big smile and said: "Yeah, yeah! It's a dream come true for me. I have dreamed to play here for a long time.

"When I saw the draw and figured I would be playing at Old Trafford, I wanted to play and I prayed to God to get an opportunity to play. I got it and I'm happy I played here."

Uzoho kept Cristiano Ronaldo, Casemiro and Marcus Rashford at bay in the first half, with the latter registering a whopping 10 shots.

He agreed it was the best performance of his career, before continuing: "I am proud of my teammates because it was not a one man job.

"We gave everything out there as a team on the field. I am happy with my performance."

United will need to win their final two games against FC Sheriff and Real Sociedad to top the group and avoid teams that drop down from the Champions League.

McTominay paid tribute to Uzoho in his post-match interview, claiming he was 'different class'.

The midfielder said: "You have to be patient sometimes. Marcus [Rashford] had so many chances and he did everything but score.

"Their goalkeeper was a different class but we created enough chances and deserved to score in the end."

United return to action on Sunday afternoon against Newcastle United.
