Danny Simpson spent seven years at Manchester United.


Manchester United take on Leicester City this afternoon at Old Trafford, where they will be hoping to exorcise the demons of their 5-3 loss at the King Power Stadium earlier in the campaign.

It is also an interesting fixture, considering the amount of former United players currently in the Leicester squad.

The likes of Danny Drinkwater, Ritchie De Laet and Matty James currently play for the side - whilst full-back Danny Simpson is also a former United player.

Simpson was at the club from 2003 until 2010, but spent most of his time with Manchester United on loan elsewhere. He went on to play for Newcastle United and QPR before joining The Foxes in the summer.

Despite never making the grade at United Simpson did make the odd appearance for the side.

He played eight times for the club, all those fixtures coming in the 2007-08 season, including three games in the Champions League.

During that time he had the opportunity to play with two of the world's best players, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

This week, ahead of the meeting with his former club, he clearly reminisced on that experience. He posted this Tweet ahead of the game and is clearly proud of his United heritage.

However, he will be showing no allegiance to the Red Devils should he get a game for Leicester this afternoon...
