Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea’s girlfriend, Singer Edurne Garcia is not a big fan of the Northwest city after rubbishing it on a Spanish television show saying it was “uglier than the back of a fridge.”
She admitted that the only reason she goes there is to be with De Gea who she has been dating now for the past five years.
The 29-year-old now runs the risk of alienating half a million people following her remarks while promoting her Eurovision Song Contest entry Amanecer (Dawn in English), while on El Hormiguero.
When the television shows host brought up the fact that she jets back and forth to Manchester, he said: “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.”
This now raises the question as to whether she will put pressure on De Gea to return to Spain and play for Real Madrid when his contract is up with United at the end of next season.
