Soares was blogging for Boston.com during United's visit.
He wrote: "I am sitting in my rat-ridden studio looking at the Manchester United jersey I traded for after last night's game at Gillette Stadium. The red top is perfectly tailored for a footballer and the velvet feel of the name and numbers on the back speaks class.
"I swapped shirts with Dimitar Berbatov, co-winner of the Golden Boot in last year's English Premier League. Surely he does not care much for the Soares jersey, but at least I went one on one against him and did not look stupid.
"I previously mentioned my two perspectives going into the game, and the game blew away my expectations. As a fan, I knew that I would be excited to see the superstars enter the field for warm-ups and I had to fight the urge to cheer when they finally arrived. Seeing Ryan Giggs, Michael Owen, and Wayne Rooney among the others was unbelievable."
