The former footballer confessed that his eldest daughter ‘turns into a horror’ when she wants to win, especially when it comes to horse dressage contests.

The MailOnline reports he said: “Match day or if it’s a big competition, going into that ring, she turns into a horror. It’s like that’s it – you get your game face on and you can’t control it.”

Michael went on to say that he’s the same, explaining that he ‘didn’t let anyone talk to him’ before a match.

He then added: “She’s the same, she’s horrible. Stay out of her way when a big competition’s coming round.

“That’s how much it means to you. Start focusing on the job in hand.”
