Manchester United rolled through town yesterday as a part of their summer exhibition tour and of course yours truly was on had to photograph the event. They meet Stockholm’s AIK at Friends Arena and over 30,000 people turned up to see the game.
The match was neither exciting nor overly boring, it kind of skated through the middle. Fitting for a summer friendly that has no bearing on things. Having covered AIK this past weekend when their former captain Daniel Tjernström played his final match I wondered why they didn’t have him play one more match and attach his farewell to this friendly. He could have been given a full 90 minutes against some of football’s elite. Plus you probably could have parked a few more people into seats.
