In an interview with Man City’s YouTube channel (which you can see below), the England midfielder was asking questions sent in by supporters. One fan – for some reason – enquired what Delph would do if he saw a ghost.
And Delph’s response went fully Sixth Sense…
“I see ghosts all the time. I think I’ve seen probably four. When I first signed for Villa, I stayed in an old hotel and there were a lot of things moving in the room, a lot of bangs. The hair was standing up on the back of my neck. And about four months ago, I seen two ghosts in the bedroom at my house. I definitely saw them. That one was actually carrying a body – it went out on to my balcony and then disappeared.”
Scary stuff. Although perhaps not as scary as Delph’s advice earlier in the interview, to a Man City fan currently living five minutes from Villa Park. Asked if he should wear his City shirt with Delph’s name on the back, Delph tells him to “wear it with pride”.
