‘Katie Price used to turn up to Man Utd every week – and us players loved it’

Former Manchester United striker Daniel Nardiello has revealed Katie Price was a regular at Old Trafford in the early 2000s.

The glamour model briefly dated Red Devils attacker Dwight Yorke in 2001 – and clearly supportive of her partner, Price rocked up to Old Trafford to watch him play. And speaking on Undr the Cosh, Nardiello has joked the United squad loved having her in attendance.

He said: "Jordan used to come to the games, you know, Katie Price. We were in awe in the changing rooms.

Explaining why he was present, Nardiello added: "We had to prove we're at the games, so the youth team managers would come before the game, we'd watch the game, and then they'd ask us about the game on Monday – because some lads wanted to sneak off.

"But she used to be there every week, watching the games, and we'd be like 'oh my god'. So we loved it, and Yorkie loved it!" However, Yorke and Price's relationship didn't last and the pair went their separate ways before their son, Harvey, was born.

Initially, Yorke denied he was Harvey's father, but a DNA test proved the Trinidad and Tobago striker was indeed Harvey's dad.

In her book Love, Lipstick And Lies, Price described how Yorke met Harvey after his 10th birthday – but only because her mum rang his manager.

She wrote: "It wasn’t a friendly meeting and I didn’t hear from Dwight afterwards. It’s such a shame. All I can say is that he is missing out on a very special little boy.

"Personally, I think he is scared of seeing Harvey…Dwight should try. He would get so much love in return."

Nardiello played with Yorke after he joined United's academy from Wolves shortly after the club's famous treble win in 1999.

However, he only went on to make four senior appearances for the Red Devils during a six-year stay before his release on a free transfer to Barnsley. Meanwhile Yorke registered 65 goals for United in 152 appearances in all competitions, before leaving for Blackburn Rovers in 2002.
