Ex-Sunderland striker drinks beer in Milan as Newcastle fan ahead of Champions League clash

Danny Graham is one of the Newcastle United fans having fun in Milan this week.

The former striker, who previously played for Sunderland, is a Magpies fan and was spotted enjoying a drink or two with thousands of other supporters in the Italian city ahead of the Champions League final, in live on talkSPORT.

Born in Chester-Le-Street, Graham got his start in football with Middlesbrough where he made 39 appearances after being offered the opportunity by Steve McClaren as the club competed in the Premier League and UEFA Cup .

After leaving the Riverside Stadium, Graham shone for Carlisle United, Watford and Swansea City, where he scored over 100 goals in six years.

It was then that the Newcastle fan joined Sunderland for the first of two spells with the club, but he only scored two goals in 59 appearances for the club.

However, he managed 57 goals and 24 assists with his next club, Blackburn Rovers, making 191 appearances in four seasons at Ewood Park.

Now retired from football, Graham made headlines for crashing his Range Rover into a shop door, admitting in April 2023 that he was almost three times the alcohol limit.

But with his club playing their first Champions League clash in more than 20 years, Graham is clearly taking the opportunity to celebrate.
