Golf star Rory McIlroy admits he loves Man Utd

New golf star Rory McIlroy admits he's Manchester United mad.

The newly-crowned US Open golf champion revealed he's a diehard United fan.

McIlroy told manutd.com: "All my mum's side of the family are United supporters - but my dad's actually a City fan so we have a few rows in the house! My first memory is the FA Cup final in 1996. I remember the green and white that Liverpool wore and, of course, Cantona's late winner.

"Beckham was the big one for me growing up. Roy Keane was another hero - he was massive, and he has the Irish connection as well. I loved Gabriel Heinze when he was there and I love Patrice Evra now. I don't know why I love Patrice so much, he just brings so much to the game. He gives a bit of an edge to it."
