Sam Trickett Meets His Manchester United Heroes

It is no secret that Sam Tricketts’ first passion is that of football, that was originally his desired career choice before injury put paid to his dream. However, despite turning into one of the world’s highest earning poker professionals, he is still football and especially Manchester United through and through.

You only have to see the love he shares for his club by looking at his Twitter homepage to prove that very point.

With a love so great you can imagine his delight at being given the chance to meet some of his footballing heroes, watch them train and then get involved in the second day of the Old Trafford poker event that is currently being held.

Here are some of the tweets that obviously show how much of an honour it has been for him:



He wasn’t the only poker player to have gone along either, his good friend Chris Sly also tagged along for the special event.

He had a special mention for two of his favourite Red Devils too, Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand. We do wonder though whether he asked the former, if he is staying or going this season after he has been involved in one of the more high profile transfer sagas during the pre-season.
