The Top Four Premier League race, for example, starts up on the very first day of the season in August and there is no respite in the talk of collapses, pressure and "drama" all the way through until May.

The young American, who has Scottish parents, has made appearances at Old Trafford and at an all-star game alongside Pep Guardiola and Kobe Bryant.
