In case you’ve been avoiding the internet right up until you saw this article, I shall remind you that Super Bowl 50 is this weekend. That’s right, on Sunday, people everywhere outside of the United States will take an interest in a sport they constantly say is boring; and severely get on the nerves of the people who are actually trying to enjoy the biggest game of the National Football League season.

With the conclusion of the NFL season being such a big event, we at ReadManUtd thought we should pay it a little attention – so here we are. In the slideshow below, we have decided where members of the Manchester United squad would play, if they were American football players. Enjoy!

O: Offense

D: Defence
