Omonia Nicosia midfielder Brandon Barker is looking forward to facing Europa League rivals Manchester United.
And after growing up in Manchester City’s academy, Barker has extra motivation to pull off an upset with the Cypriot side.
The 26-year-old told The Sun: “I spent 16 years at City — but I was always a Red growing up.
“When I was seven I was at United. However, it was quite far from my house so we opted to go with the City route and that’s how the change happened.
“After spending so much time there, I fell in love with Man City as well. When they play each other I try not to support anyone.
“It would be special to beat them as half of my friends are City, half are United.
“Nobody is expecting anything from us and rightly so — it’s Man United. But we will relish that.”
