I don’t think it would be peculiar at all. One was in his blood, one was an employer. Granted, he has friends and memories, but I don’t think most people stop supporting “their team” based on who they play for. I played with Sunderland, Leeds and Oldham, but I never stopped being a City fan. I now fly for an airline that is in direct opposition to City’s main sponsor, but I have tons of such with Etihad on it, even though my airline pays for everything in my life! Being a fan of a football team is embedded in one’s psyche, one’s soul.
