He said: "I'm passionate about my country and whatever the result of Thursday's referendum, we will always be Great. Each side has the right to their opinion and that should always be respected whatever the outcome of the European Referendum.

"I played my best years at my boyhood club, Manchester United. I grew up with a core group of young British players that included Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville Brothers. Added to that was an experienced group of older British players such as Gary Pallister, Steve Bruce and Paul Ince.

"Now that team might have gone on to win trophies but we were a better and more successful team because of a Danish goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel, the leadership of an Irishman Roy Keane and the skill of a Frenchman in Eric Cantona.

"I was also privileged to play and live in Madrid, Milan and Paris with teammates from all around Europe and the world. Those great European cities and their passionate fans welcomed me and my family and gave us the opportunity to enjoy their unique and inspiring cultures and people.

"We live in a vibrant and connected world where together as a people we are strong. For our children and their children we should be facing the problems of the world together and not alone.

"For these reasons I am voting to Remain."

Still undecided on how to vote in this week's EU Referendum? Wolfgang have now released their one-off, politically charged podcast special called BREAK UP OR MAKE UP.

Featuring Rick Edwards alongside a panel of special guest, it tackles the most important political decision the current generation will make, delivered in an easily digestible style.

Edwards comments: "The EU referendum is an incredibly important decision that rests in our hands. With all the information out there, some of it factual, some of it sensationalist, we wanted to create a podcast that tried to get to the bottom of the main issues, and provide some intelligent insight, without scaremongering, ahead of the vote".
