Burton meet United tonight in the Carabao Cup.
“My father had been driving me down to Crewe for years, twice a week, taking me to games on a Saturday," Lund told The Sun. “He never complained once, but I'm sure he would have been very glad to have been making a much shorter trip into Manchester if I had said yes.
“There was also the fact that, as a family, we were all United-mad. My dad was even on duty as a doctor at games for three years, but each time, it just didn't feel right to me.
“I'd been going to Crewe since I was ten. I had a lot of mates there and I loved the coaching under Steve Holland, who is now assistant manager to Gareth Southgate for England.
“And even then I could see that some kids just sort of disappeared when they signed up for United. I just thought that if I was going to make it as a footballer, I would have a better long-term chance by staying where I was."
