Just because rising Manchester United star Adnan Januzaj makes £30,000 a week doesn’t mean he has to spend it all in one place. Or more specifically, on one date.
Well, the youngster apparently learned a hard lesson in love when he took a woman out on a date and she was left rather upset.
According to The Sun, Januzaj took Melissa McKenzie to the famous casual chicken join Nando’s — he even had her drive him and pay for parking. McKenzie wasn’t too thrilled:
"I’ve never met anyone so stingy in my life," she told The Sun. “I was so excited for the date.”
"I expected him to come to me in a flashy car, but I ended up driving him about in my old blue Fiesta and I was left to pay and display. Then he said he was taking me to Nando’s – my face fell."
"I usually go there for a quick bite to eat with my mates. I didn’t expect to be going there on a date with a Man United footballer, especially in my dress and heels."
McKenzie certainly didn’t get what she expected on the date, and Januzaj himself got a little surprise too.

If her story is true, it’s actually kind of sweet that the kid took his date to a low-key place (not to mention that Nando’s is delicious). Footballers are real people too!
