May: I’ve loved doing UTD Podcast

Monday 24 August 2020 16:00

Former Manchester United defender David May has spoken about his enjoyment at being involved in our UTD Podcast series.

Maysie was actually interviewed by hosts Sam Homewood and Helen Evans during the pilot episode last year and was such a natural behind the microphone he was asked to help co-present the show alongside the MUTV duo.

Since then, UTD Podcast have spoken to some of the biggest names in United’s history, from homegrown products Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, to cherished overseas players such as Eric Cantona and Paul Pogba.

Through in-depth chats, UTD Podcast have unearthed and told previously unknown tales and anecdotes and, unsurprisingly, Maysie has thoroughly loved the experience.

“Every single one has been totally different,” the 50-year-old said during the latest MUTV Group Chat. 

“Ben [Thornley] has done it, I’ve done it. Eric [Cantona]… there have been some really great stories about how the lads grow up. Some coming from poverty, some coming from war-torn areas. It’s a real eye-opener that a lot of people don’t even know.

“Once you get into it and they start talking, they can be unbelievable stories and the podcasts have been really good. I’ve loved doing them and hopefully we get a few more soon.”

“I think we’ve done over 50 now,” he said, before giving a little insight into the next former Red who could appear. “I think we’re in the process of trying to get Alan Smith. That would be a really good podcast,” he said.

Maysie was speaking ahead of the latest episode, which features Phil Neville. During Monday’s MUTV Group Chat, David revealed the next podcast - which is out today (Monday) - recalls Phil’s encounters against United during his Everton days, including a famous goal in the wrong net and a robust challenge on our then star man.

“We all know Phil really well, he’s hilarious,” said Maysie. “But Everton… scoring the own goal to help United win the league, smashing [Cristiano] Ronaldo. These are things that happen in games. He’s such a loveable lad that at times you actually felt sorry for him for scoring the own goal.”
