Renowned journalist Ian Hawkey is the guest on the new United We Stand podcast.
Fulham fan Ian, who was The Sunday Times European football correspondent for 11 years until 2012, joins us from South Africa where he’s covering the Africa Cup of Nations.
A specialist on African football and author of ‘Feet Of The Chameleon – The Story of African Football’, Ian talks about the mystery surrounding former Manchester United players Bebe and Manucho.
He discusses United’s African and Portuguese connections and outlines why United no longer buy African players - at least those who play their international football for African countries. He also remembers covering United pre-season in ’93, great South African football names and the word ‘Fulhamish’.
