Former American football quarterback Tom Brady took to his Twitter account hours before Tottenham Hotspur played against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, March 12, to predict a win for the host.

In the tweet which generated over 113,000 likes, over 9,000 retweets, and over 1,750 quotes, Tom Brady described the Premier League game as a Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United and Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur’s show.

Brady who is regarded as the greatest quarterback of all-time in the National Football League (NFL), noted that though he was supporting Manchester United to win the game, that would not stop him to pump his fist if Harry Kane scores.

The NFL legend tweeted: “Here we go! @Cristiano vs. @HKane. I might fist pump if you score Harry but I’m riding with
@ManUtd today.”

Though Brady received a series of bashing for supporting Manchester United ahead of the game due to the club’s inconsistency in recent times, his decision to support United to win the game paid off.

The Premier League game was purely Ronaldo and Harry’s show. Ronaldo scored the opener in the 12th minute outside the eighteen yard box. But Harry Kane canceled the goal in the 35th minute via the spot-kick.

In the 38th minute, Ronaldo restored Manchester United’s lead through a tap-in which was almost canceled by the VAR. But after minutes of review, the goal stood.

Unfortunately for Manchester United, the Harry (Maguire) in United’s squad decided to have his name on the scoresheet against his team. The captain’s own goal in the 72nd minute almost ended the game in a 2-2 draw.

However, Manchester United that enjoyed just 43 percent of the ball possession as against Tottenham Hotspur’s 57 percent ball possession were able to earn the maximum three points thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s 81st-minute header.
