Manchester City may have broken their 35-year trophy drought this season and reached the Champions League but the season had a bitter end for supporter Rodney Ward.

The 24-year-old has had a tattoo of Manchester United's badge etched on his chest after losing a bet.

Ward and United fan Paul Madden decided to bet each other over which club would finish highest in the Premier League last August - with the loser getting the other club's crest tattooed on his chest.

The heating engineer told the Daily Mail: "I'm embarrassed as anything but it could have been worse if United had won the

Champions League too.

"As it is I'll just have to grin and bear the fact I've got a United logo on my chest."

Ward is the latest City fan to have a questionable tattoo on his body.

In 2009, Chris Atkinson got a little too excited when his team launched a £100million bid for Kaka - and had the Brazil

superstar's name tattooed across his chest.

And last year Kirk Bradley was so confident of success he had the words "Manchester City 2011 Champions League Winners" tattooed on his arm next to a picture of the European trophy.
