Conor McGregor risks wrath of Man Utd fans as he says he also supports two others teams

UFC star Conor McGregor could be in trouble with Manchester United fans after admitting that he also supports Liverpool - and backed them for Champions League glory

UFC star Conor McGregor could be in hot water with Manchester United fans after admitting that he also supports Liverpool and Real Madrid.

The Irishman has previously revealed that he was a huge United fan growing up and has also attended various games at Old Trafford down the years years.

Sky Sports at the Monaco Grand Prix qualifiers, McGregor was asked if he'd be watching Saturday night's final - and revealed that he was a fan of United's bitter rivals, Liverpool.

McGregor said: "You know, my family are Liverpool, I'm a supporter of Liverpool...I'm a supporter of Real Madrid also. I hope for a great game but I'll have to go with the pool [Liverpool] for this one, I'll have to go for the pool."

Liverpool are arguably United's biggest rivals, so it's unclear how well McGregor's admission will go down with fans on social media.

Speaking back in January 2021, McGregor revealed that he was attracted to United growing up because of the club's success.
