The One And Only: Manchester United Edition

29 July 2021

Summer signing Matthew Olosunde is our cover star and featured interview in this weekend’s matchday programme for the pre-season friendly against Manchester United.

North End’s new defender grew up in the United States and his first chance to play football in England was with Saturday's opposition, who he joined in 2016.

He would go on to stay at Old Trafford until 2019 and within that time earned himself a place in a couple of first team matchday squads.

Speaking to The One And Only, Matt said: “It was pretty surreal; it was a bit weird coming to England. Playing football in England isn’t really something I thought I would be doing really, it was never really part of my plan, but it was exciting definitely.

“I did live away from home already to be fair, but it wasn’t across the water, so it was a bit different!

“When I joined United I didn’t really play with the U18s, I was kind of just straight with the U23s since I was just turning 18.

“Scott McTominay was there, Marcus Rashford was there for a couple of weeks and then he blew up! Cameron Borthwick-Jackson played, but he’s not there anymore either.”
