After Manchester United’s defeat to Sunderland on penalties in the Capital One Cup last night, one drunken Manchester United supporter called emergency services in England and asked to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson.
The supporter called 999 (the UK’s version of 911) and spoke to the emergency services operator. Presumably with the alcohol streaming through his blood stream, the caller couldn’t comprehend why Sir Alex Ferguson wasn’t available, nor why Fergie can’t change anything at the club.
You have to love the part about the supporter saying that a crime has been committed. Since when has Manchester United being absolutely knackered a crime?!
