Cheeky boy

Remember Lee Sharpe? Before Ryan Giggs burst on the scene, Sharpe was United’s poster boy. He was a fine player, but his main problem was a) he liked to party, and b) he just wasn’t as good as Giggs.
In the end, he’ll be remembered as just another Englishman who didn’t fulfil his potential. Shame. He was capable of great things, as this very cheeky finish, against Barcelona in the CL (see what I did there) shows.
