The country’s famous and the most controversial politician Nigel Farage has finally revealed his favorite Premier League on Matt Le Tissier’s online talk show. Nigel Farage is mostly famous in England for his efforts in persuading the people of the UK to vote for Brexit during the referendum back in 2016. The former UKIP leader told Le Tissier that he is a huge fan of Crystal Palace. 

Farage said: “Of course, I follow football. My earliest memories of football are being taken, I suppose 1969 or 1970, to watch Crystal Palace play. Malcolm Allison, with the big fedoras, who’d come from Man City, was the manager. Don Rogers, the star player for Swindon, had come to Palace as centre-forward, and my grandfather and grandmother used to go and watch Palace.”

Nigel Farage went back in time to narrate how much of an Eagles fan his family was, he said, “My father and uncles used to go and watch Palace, my son is a season ticket holder at Palace, I follow Palace closely every week. Football is not my No.1 sport, but I follow it. I probably actually, in terms of listening to football, and reading about football, I probably spend a few hours a week on football.

But in the ongoing season, Crystal Palace hasn’t been able to live up to the expectations of their fans and needs to pick themselves up after having managed just one win out of the six matches they have played. In the last match, they drew against Newcastle United and their next game is a tough one as they will be home against Chelsea which will also mark the debut match of their new coach Graham Potter.
