Above, you can watch some footage of Drake and his OVO crew arriving to Manchester City‘s Etihad Stadium this afternoon in Manchester, England. I guess this means Drizzy isn’t a hardcore Manchester United supporter if he is going watching their rivals play.

Man City played Sunderland today and the game finished 3-3, which is more great news for Man Utd fans as MUFC are currently top of the Premier League with not many games left to play!

Above, you can watch a video of when Drake met Manchester United FC’s Rio Ferdinand, courtesy of SoulCulture. They talk about music, sportsmanship, teamwork, and more.

“I have a line on my album where I say, ‘Sports and music are so synonymous, ’cause we wanna be them and they wanna be us’… I feel that way – if I couldn’t rap, I would wanna be here in this building,” visiting rap star Drake tells 4nB from the Manchester United team’s training grounds [referring to the song, “Thank Me Now”], whilst on the UK leg of his Lightdreams & Nightmares tour.

“I feel the same way,” UK football star Rio Ferdinand nods in agreement, as the pair comment on the similarities between the lifestyles of pop stars and sporting stars when it comes to performing, motivation, showmanship, team spirit and female attention.

Drake Meets Rio Ferdinand

This is great news for myself, because I’m a big Manchester United fan haha!

After the jump, you can watch two videos of SoulCulture speaking to Drizzy about what his favorite verse of all-time is, and the impact Aaliyah has made on his music and career:
