If you’re a Tory voter who’s a Manchester City fan then this news story will probably make your day.
Rumours are doing rounds that Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard wants to be a Tory MP after his retirement.
According to The Times, Lampard has “issued a come and get me plea” to top Tories. In an interview with the paper, Lampard classified himself as a Conservative but did say that he doesn’t agree with everything they say.
He said he believes the Tories will win the general election. “I have met David Cameron a couple of times and George Osborne – I have a lot of respect for them,” he said.
“And quite a few Labour ones I have respect for too, like Ed Balls, who is big into his football.
“I will certainly vote and certainly pay more attention going into this election than I have before,” he added.
