David Beckham and Roy Keane were lapping it up as I was forced to pretend to have sex in front of team-mates during a horrible Man United initiation, reveals a former Premier League youngster
- Daniel Nardiello has recalled his ‘horrible’ initiation at Manchester United
- He claims he was forced to pretend to have sex in front of the first-team stars
A former Manchester United prospect has revealed that he was forced to pretend to have sex with an imaginary woman in front of some of the club’s treble winning heroes as part of his initiation.
Daniel Nardiello joined United from Wolves in 1999 and went on to make his debut for the club in a League Cup defeat to Arsenal two years later at the age of 19.
He spent most of his time at the club out on loan before leaving permanently in 2005 after completing a move to Barnsley.
Nardiello has shed light on the more outrageous initiations players had to go through when they joined a new club.
The now 40-year-old has revealed he had a ‘horrible’ experience in which he claims he had to simulate sex with a pretend woman on the table, in front of club legends including David Beckham, Roy Keane and Ryan Giggs.

He claimed Ryan Giggs (C) led the instructions with David May, while David Beckham (L) and Roy Keane (R) were ‘lapping it all in’ as they watched Nardiello’s ‘horrible’ experience
Speaking on the Under the Cosh podcast, Nardiello, when asked about his United initiation, said: ‘Mine was I had to make love to a [pretend] woman on the table.
‘A few of us had to do that. You had to describe the girl. It was horrible.
‘”Is she blonde, brunette, is she busty, is she not? ‘How are you doing it? What are you saying to her?” [I was] bright red, it was horrible.’
Nardiello said it ‘100 per cent’ had to be in the missionary position, as United’s players laughed.
Nardiello, who also played for clubs including QPR, Swansea, and Blackpool during his career, said he was shocked by the response of United’s first-team players.
He added: ‘These are the superstars as well.
‘It was [Ryan] Giggs and David May the main guys in there but you can see Keane and Beckham there just lapping it all in and you’re like, “oh my God, I’ve got to make love to a girl in front of all these guys”.’
Other team-mates were more fortunate in that their initiation didn’t have them simulate sex on a table.
Nardiello only played a handful of games for United’s senior squad during a career in which he played for 13 teams including Barnsley (pictured in the 2006 League One play-off final)
The former Wales international said one team-mate had to play the ‘spoon game’ with ex-United defender David May.
The game would see May and the unnamed youngster put spoons in their mouths and try to hit each other as hard as they could.
However, when it was May’s go, Giggs would sneakily hit the youngster on the head.
Nardiello would likely have gone through a number of initiations during his career, given that he played for 13 different teams before his career ended at Bangor City in 2017.
Arguably his career highlight came for Barnsley in 2006, where he scored an equaliser during the League One play-off final, which forced the game to penalties before they went on to beat his former side Swansea 4-3.
He also made three international appearances for Wales between 2007 and 2008.
