Man United fans in uproar over video of leaking Old Trafford roof

Manchester United’s problems on the pitch continued over the weekend after losing to Crystal Palace, and a viral video also captured one of the problems away from the pitch too.

A clip has been circulating online which shows the roof at Old Trafford leaking onto the supporters below during the game.

The condition of the stadium has been a point of contention among fans for years. The ground last underwent an upgrade in 2006 and the lack of investment in the facilities has seen owners the Glazers come in for criticism.

A video posted by social media user @KyleHall1996 shows rainwater leaking onto fans in their seats as they endured a pretty miserable 1-0 loss – their second successive home defeat.

It’s been viewed more than 2.5 million times and it’s attracted the ire of United fans online.

The caption for the video read: “It was a wet one at Old Trafford today. The Glazers need to invest in fixing the roof of the stadium.”

One fan replied to the clip by writing: “That’s unacceptable man.”

Another wrote: “Absolutely shameful that is, years of neglect. Would never see that at Madrid or Bayern.”

“Sums up our great club right now an absolute disgrace,” a user added.

It comes as United manager Erik ten Hag said he understood the supporters who booed the team off after their 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, which marked their fifth defeat already this season.

Ten Hag said: “I understand. When we played at home we play Crystal Palace, we have to win. With all respect, I know every game in is very difficult, you have to play your best and I understand fans expecting a win and we didn’t win. We lost.”

NNL solicits for funds from cooperate organisation

The Nigeria National League, NNL, has appealed to cooperate organisations for funds to assist in the effective running of the second tier league.

NNL chairman, George Aluo noted that the unavailability of funds has hindered the progress of his administration.

“I must continue to express my appreciation to Alhaji Gusau for finding me worthy to serve as NNL chairman and a board member of the NFF,” he stated.

“My appeal is that corporate organizations should come to our aid and do what GTI is doing for the NPFL.

“We’re not saying they should give us money to put in our pockets. Let them take care of referees indemnity and once this is done, the referees will not be intimidated but rather be at their best and it will now be possible for teams to be winning more on the road as is presently being witnessed in the NPFL.”
