Man Utd reveal Champions League iPod choices – Daily Gossip

Lily Allen, Kasabian, Madonna – your music gossip stop

Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Manchester United‘s first team have revealed their iPod playlist, set to be aired on the team bus before tonight’s (May 27) European Champions League final against Barcelona.


Alongside the seemingly obligatory Oasis tracks (Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes chose ‘Supersonic’, ‘Wonderwall’ and ‘Cast No Shadow’ respectively), were a few wildcards.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani both plumped for tracks by the Gypsy Kings, while Dutch keeper Edwin Van Der Saar chose Musical Youth‘s 1982 teen weed anthem ‘Pass The Dutchie’ (so don’t count on him letting in any goals on the left hand side tonight…).

Perhaps cheesiest of all was Rio Ferdinand‘s choice of Duran Duran‘s ‘Rio’. Manager Alex Ferguson‘s choices (ABBA, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin) didn’t make the playlist, though Stereophonics‘Dakota’ did, as requested by Wayne Rooney (The Sun).
