Reading striker Le Fondre excited facing Man Utd

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre is up for their FA Cup clash with Manchester United.

Tomorrow Le Fondre aims to fulfil a boyhood dream and score at his beloved Theatre of Dreams — his first time on the hallowed turf where he used to watch his heroes from the terraces.

He told The Sun: “It’s going to be unreal for me. I’ve always dreamed of playing there for United yet never made it. But this will be the next best thing.

“I went to a few games as a kid. We didn’t have much money so couldn’t afford a season ticket.

“Being on the same pitch as Ryan Giggs, one of the players I idolised as a kid, is an honour in itself. But, make no mistake, I’m not going there to swap shirts. I’ll hopefully score the winner that knocks him out of the Cup!

“If we win then I might just ask RVP, Rooney or Giggsy for a souvenir.”
