Not less than twenty Manchester United fans attacked the residence of the club’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward on Tuesday evening.
Naija News learnt that the Fans who are believed to be part of a hooligan group known as the ‘Men In Black’ marched on Woodward’s home in Cheshire and at least one red flare was thrown over the gate at the front of the property while red paint was sprayed over the intercom. But luckily Woodward and his family were not in the property at the time of the attack, according to widespread reports.
however, A statement from United read: ‘Manchester United Football Club have tonight been made aware of the incident outside the home of one of our employees.
‘We know that the football world will unite behind us as we work with Greater Manchester Police to identify the perpetrators of this unwarranted attack. ‘Anybody found guilty of a criminal offense, or found to be trespassing on this property, will be banned for life by The Club and may face prosecution.‘Fans expressing an opinion is one thing, criminal damage and intent to endanger life is another. There is simply no excuse for this.’
