Drunk Man Calls 999 To Demand Chat With Sir Alex After Sunderland Humiliation


Greater Manchester Police have advised Manchester United supporters not to ring 999 if they want to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson after a drunk supporter did just that.

The inebriated fan had  called the emergency number in the immediate aftermath of the Capital  One Cup semi-final defeat on penalties by Sunderland and demanded to have a chat with Ferguson about the  team’s fortunes.

That caused the police to issue their peculiar and humourous message, shown above.

The male fan told the police that he did indeed want to report a crime, and that the crime was that Manchester United were ‘completely knackered’.

He also added that the ‘result was all wrong’ and that it was a ‘total and utter load of rubbish’.

The fan, like thousands of others, had watched on aghast as United somehow conspired to knock themselves out of the cup and fail to set up a Wembley final with rivals Manchester City next month.

The game was a microcosm of United’s season. They went ahead thanks to  Jonny Evans but failed to hammer home their advantage and rather limped  to penalties after Phil Bardsley – thanks to an horrific mistake by goalkepper David de Gea – had looked like giving the visitors a win in extra time.

However, in an echo of Ferguson’s old teams where no cause was a losing one, Javier Hernandez equalised in added time to take the game to penalties.

Phil Jones, Rafael, Danny Welbeck and Adnan Januzaj then all missed in the shootout as Sunderland progressed.

It was all too much for the supporter and he tried to take matters into his own hands by dialling 999 and asking for a chat with the legendary former boss.

After all, it is an emergency at Old Trafford.
