Manchester United’s loss to Sunderland this week was a very poor performance from us at home to the Premier League’s bottom side and for one fan, it was all a bit too much.
A drunk United fan took it upon himself to call 999 and ask to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson about the shocking result from Old Trafford that night. It was a crime that needed reporting in his eyes.
He said: “Yes, a crime. I want to report a crime. The crime is that Manchester United were absolutely knackered.”
Greater Manchester Police received the call at 22:30 on Wednesday and suggested contacting United to speak to the former manager, rather than the 999 line.
Yes it was a bad result. No, it wasn’t bad enough to call the police about.
Either way, the phone call is still good for a laugh.
