Manchester United lost on penalties to Sunderland, eliminating themselves from the Capital One Cup, exacerbating an already miserable season under David Moyes. A drunk fan dialed 999, the British equivalent of 911, after the match asking for famed and recently retired manager Sir Alex Ferguson. When asked what crime he wished to report that “Manchester United…Manchester United…were absolutely…knackered.”
Greater Manchester Police issued a reminder that 999 was for real emergencies only. Fans can dial 101 to rant about their soccer club.
“Obviously, it can be a sad and depressing moment when you’re [sic] football team loses a game, however can we all please remember that 999 is to be used for emergencies only. For any other police related enquiries that are not an emergency, you can ring 101.
“If you would like to speak to Sir Alex about recent football results we here at GMP Manchester North can only suggest you try ringing Manchester United FC directly as you will probably (not definitely) have a much better chance of getting through to him there rather than ringing the police.”
Manchester United, last year’s EPL Champions, are in seventh place, 14 points behind leaders Arsenal. They are six points behind Liverpool for the 4th Champions League place.
