Coldplay's Chris Martin Supports Michael Jackson's Favourite Football Team

Coldplay's Chris Martin Supports Michael Jackson's Favourite Football TeamColdplay frontman Chris Martin supports Michael Jackson's favourite football team, Exeter City, guitarist Johnny Buckland has revealed.

In an interview with Tottenham Hotspur's official club magazine, Buckland suggested he would give up Coldplay to play for the team, which he has supported since his childhood.

"I wanted to be in a band from age 11 but I wanted to be a footballer from the age of five. But there's still time,” he said.

Buckland also revealed that Coldplay have their own football team which gets tested against locals “wherever we are in the world.”

He said: "There's me and Will (Champion), a couple of guys from the crew and we've got a security guy in goal. He's a man mountain, so it's really hard to score past him."

Jackson began supporting Exeter City as a result of his friendship with Uri Geller. It's not clear how passionately he follows the club's Football League Two progress.
