Man Utd Stars' Poker Nights

Thursday, 25 September 2014

There are already plenty of links between the worlds of football and poker and now a couple of Manchester United stars have revealed their love of the game.

In an interview with, Brazilian defender Rafael confirmed that he's quite partial to a heads-up game with Darren Fletcher.

“Sometimes, I go to Fletch's house and we play poker and talk about football all night!” said Raphael, “But of course we do talk about other things as well.”

Fletcher is no stranger to the world of poker. The 30-year-old has made a couple of appearances at the World Series of Poker and also featured in the UKIPT closer to home.

Both Fletcher and Rafael have some way to go if they're to catch up with former United star Teddy Sheringham. The veteran striker has excelled on the felt and has career earnings of over $329,000 as well as a final table in the EPT Vilamoura Main Event.
