Spare a thought for the parents of this Manchester United-mad girl who threw a huge tantrum at having to wear a blue school uniform.
Little Lilly Rae Doyle is due to begin St Elizabeth’s RC Primary School in Wythemshawe in just under two weeks.
And she failed to hold back when giving her opinion on the uniform she’ll have to wear after finding out it’s the colour of Manchester City:
It’s a superb story, first broke by the Manchester Evening News and reporter Richard Wheatstone.
Lilly’s mum Faye is quoted as saying:
I knew she wasn’t going to be happy. She just loves United, she is such an avid fan and loves everything to do with them. It’s always United, United, United.
“We went to buy the uniform earlier this week and we thought once she had it on we might be able to talk her round.
“It was a nightmare, I don’t know how we’re going to get on when it’s her first day at school because she’s not changing her mind. I don’t think it’s going to be easy.”
