Former Manchester United full-back and current Burnley man Phil Bardsley joined the UTD Podcast overlooking the Old Trafford pitch.

Phil grew up across the road from Man Utd's famous Cliff Training Ground and dreamed of playing for the club. He talked about how those dreams came true when he finally made his debut for the club alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo.

He also gave his version of events from that infamous kitchen boxing match with Wayne Rooney. We heard how that came about and Phil's reaction to Wazza's incredible goal celebration against Tottenham Hotspur days later.
