David de Gea's girlfriend Edurne García didn't exactly endear herself to Manchester-dwelling United fans on a Spanish TV show on Wednesday night, in which she agreed that our fair city is "uglier than the back of a fridge." As much as I'm sure many of us would disagree, we have to concede that that is a pretty excellent diss.
This full quote comes via the Mirror:
Pablo Motos, host of evening light entertainment show El Hormiguero, quizzed her about her trips to Manchester before asking her: "I've been told Manchester is uglier than the back of a fridge."
She replied: "It's not very nice, that's for sure. You have to hunt out specific places, the nicer places.
"But even then Spain is nicer. The reason I like it is because David's there. With him being there, everything looks wonderful."
David clearly hasn't been showing her enough of Manchester's cultural hotspots. There's the newly-renovated Central Library, the even more newly-renovated Whitworth Art Gallery, the splendid neo-Gothic John Rylands Library, the Roman remains at Mamucium ...
Or, failing that, there's always Big Dave's favourite doughnut joint.
