The Wanted's Max Shares Ball Skills With Justin Bieber

Max George from The Wanted has been sharing his football skills with Justin Bieber, ahead of The Wanted supporting him on tour.

The Wanted are hooking up with Justin Bieber to support the teen on tour next month, and Justin has been bonding with Max over football.

"Max George almost made it professionally as a footballer," a source spilled.

"He's been teaching Justin some of his footie skills ahead of their tour together in South America in October."

The pair have become so pally that they've even planned to bond over more football next time Bieber is in the UK.

"They've struck up a real friendship," the source told the Daily Mirror.

"And Max has promised to take Justin to his beloved Manchester City when Justin is back in town."

The Wanted's new single 'Lightning' had its first play on Capital FM this morning, and is out to download from Sunday 30th October.
