Adnan Januzaj Reportedly Takes a Date for £18 Nando's Meal

Manchester United's 18-year-old star Adnan Januzaj has been accused of a heinous offense today: taking a date out to Nando's.

The girl he was with, 25-year-old student Melissa McKenzie, told Ruth Warrander of The Sun (h/t Metro) that the midfielder arrived in a tracksuit and spent £18 on the meal.

Here's some of what Ms. McKenzie revealed:

I’ve never met anyone so stingy in my life.

I expected him to come to me in a flashy car, but I ended up driving him about in my old blue Fiesta and I was left to pay and display.

He said he was taking me to Nando’s – my face fell.

Fellow Premier League youngster Andros Townsend was unimpressed by the article, tweeting the following:

Nando's, meanwhile, have offered the midfielder a £50 gift card along with some friendly advice.

Count teammate Rio Ferdinand among those who approve of his selection of date location. 


For our part, having Adnan Januzaj take us out for some Nando's sounds lovely.
