VIDEO: Huge 49ers Practice Squad Lineman Is British, Loves Manchester United
The International Cup match between Barcelona and Manchester United brought out the inner soccer fans in a couple of San Francisco 49ers players, who watched the game in their own Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
Lawrence Okoye, a member of the practice squad, and defensive back Eric Reid went to the game dressed to represent their squads and had an entertaining argument that anyone who has watched sports with their buddies can relate to.
But hold up...there's a British dude in the NFL? Who knew. That's awesome. Reid may be in a little over his head on this one.
Apparently Okoye is also a former discus athlete from England and competed for his country in the 2012 London Summer Olympics, so it's highly probable that his love for Manchester United runs deep. Plus he's absolutely massive; listed at 6'6" and about 300 lbs.
Turns out Reid won't have a chance to put his foot in his mouth with his ginormous teammate, as Manchester United won the match 2-1. Fingers crossed for a follow-up video of these two having a post-game afternoon tea.
