Why Man United? I asked.
“Because I’m half Japanese and the best Japanese player Shinji Kagawa plays for Man United.”
When I spotted Jonathan walking down the street I debated if I should approach him since he is not wearing a jersey. But there was something about him so I couldn’t let him pass by. Jonathan was born in Montreal after his father came from Japan and settled here. His answer mirrors that of many Bosnians who support Manchester City only because Edin Džeko plays there. And I wonder what happens when Džeko, or Kagawa, finally change the club. I’m not sure I care to know.
