PUTRAJAYA, May 24 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, a Manchester United fan, and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor are expected to watch the European Champions League final between Man U and Barcelona on a giant screen with hundreds of football fans at Persiaran Perdana, here, early Sunday morning.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek said today that preparations were being made to enable the prime minister and his wife to watch the much-anticipated match between the newly-crowned English and Spanish champions.

He was speaking to reporters after looking at the preparations being made for the Youth Day celebrations to be held here from May 27 to 29.

Despite his hectic schedule, the prime minister has been following the English Premier League with Man U topping the table at the end of this season.

Last December, Najib joined hundreds of city folk watching the AFF Suzuki Cup final between Malaysia and Vietnam on a giant screen in Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

Man U which had just won the EPL trophy for the 19th time looks forward to winning the European championship for the fourth time.
