Magic of the Cup

'I don't want the lads having selfies with Wayne Rooney,' says Yeovil boss

Manchester United travel to the League One side in the third round of the FA Cup this afternoon.

LOUIS VAN GAAL is likely to name a strong Manchester United side for their FA Cup third round clash with Yeovil Town but manager Gary Johnson is determined to see his side avoid becoming star-struck.

Johnson has warned his players not to look for “selfies with Wayne Rooney” at Huish Park on Sunday afternoon.

Johnson said he will get “the raging hump” if he sees any sign that his players are in awe of the Premier League giants’ galaxy of stars.

“I don’t want the lads having selfies with Wayne Rooney,” Johnson told the Western Gazette.

“We are going into battle and trying to stop one of the best teams in the world. So there won’t be any selfies while I’m around.

Being star-struck by Manchester United is a concern and you can’t stop human nature.

“This is a one-off game, which some of the lads aren’t going to have again. I’m sure they will think: ‘Can I get Wayne Rooney’s boots?’ You know that’s going to happen.

“But we need to make sure we get into game mode.

I don’t mind it after the final whistle, but I will have the raging hump if my players swap shirts before then.”
