Chris Gayle visited Premier League Club Manchester United’s stadium, Old Trafford on Monday and the Jamaican shared a picture of him holding a scarf of the Premier League club with a caption, “Meeting went well with the new manager…once I get my terms then I will sign with @manchesterunited ⚽️ #SixMachine.” Gayle shared the picture on Instagram, Twitter and Facbook. Cricketers across the globe have been very active on social media, interacting with their fans and keeping them posted about very little bit happening in their life. Gayle is easily one of those which is why his fans are aware that he has always supported Manchester United. READ: Chris Gayle: Was victim of ‘double standards’ in sexism row

In an interview earlier with wicricnews.com, the giant man had revealed that football was his first choice of sport before he realised that he was better in cricket. Gayle, who is known for his fireworks on field especially in the T20 format, is known for avoiding running between the wickets, when he can score runs by smashing those big shots. Interestingly, running was one of the major reasons he opted out of football and instead took up cricket seriously.

When Gayle was asked had he not chosen cricket as a profession, what would he be doing in life. To which a confident reply had come, saying, “I’d be a soccer player and I’d be representing Manchester United – there’s no two ways about it. I got skills, I’m very talented. Football was one of my first sports over cricket. I used to like playing football more than cricket but I was more talented in cricket,” he said without any hesitation.

“In cricket there’s not too much running, but in football there’s too much running. I’m not too keen on too much running (but) I’d be playing for Manchester if I (took) it up seriously,” Gayle added.
