Daniel Nardiello’s career after his sexual hazing at Manchester United
Nardiello (1982) was a young promise for Manchester United who made his debut with the ‘red devils’ on November 5, 2001 against Arsenal and who became a three-time international with the Wales team.
But the promising striker, for whom Manchester United paid more than 200,000 euros to Wolverhampton Wanderers when he was just 17 years old, did not quite materialize at Old Trafford.
After being loaned out to Swansea City and Barnsley, the Coventry footballer, who is currently 40 years old, left Manchester United to play the following years for Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers, Blackpool, Hartlepool United, Bury, Oldham Athletic, Exeter City, Rotherham United , Plymouth Argyle and Bangor City.
