Utd face rap over damaged wall

2011-04-19 10:45

London - Manchester United hit the wall after their FA Cup semi-final defeat to City - and now the question is who's the culprit?

The Sun reports that someone in Alex Ferguson's camp took out their frustrations on the wall in the manager's area of the dressing room at some point during their Wembley visit.

United are expected to be hit with a bill.The FA would make no comment on Monday night but Wembley sources confirmed the wall of the "away" dressing room had been damaged.

It was repaired by the time Stoke arrived on Sunday - but players could still see traces.

Suggestions indicate the hole was probably caused by a kick but there is no suggestion of a criminal act or police involvement.

Ferguson sat in the stands during the tie as he saw his tilt for the Treble collapse.

Paul Scholes cannot have been happy after his second-half red card.

Could Rio Ferdinand or Anderson - incensed by Mario Balotelli's full-time celebrations following City's 1-0 win - have lashed out?

Or was it a member of the backroom staff? Fitness coach Tony Strudwick was apparently in the vicinity.

United sources on Monday night claimed the damage would "cost no more than £50 to repair."

      Are you basing this on your incredible performance against Liverpool or on your mediocre performance against a "Non performing" Manchester United. But then again, you still have to win the trophy. Go Stoke Go!

      Probably because you are trying to comment on a game that you clearly didn't see.

    Is this really worth talking about?

      Unfortunately it is front page news in the U.K as well a main item on Sky T.V. Just shows the lack of any good news.
