FA Cup: Manchester United apologise for not providing food, drinks

Manchester United have released a statement apologising to fans for not making food and drinks available for fans during the half-time of their FA Cup clash with Middlesbrough.

They said it was a technical issue that meant there was no food or drink available at half-time.The stadium announcement led fans to demand the immediate resignation of the club’s owners, the Glazer family.

A United statement read: “We can confirm that Old Trafford was affected by a power surge shortly before tonight’s game and this caused the failure of some stadium systems, including tills in our food and beverage kiosks.”We sincerely regret the disappointment and inconvenience this caused fans. All remaining hot and perishable food was given away for free to supporters as they left the stadium.”

Ralf Rangnick’s side went on to crash out of the FA Cup in the fourth round, losing 8-7 on a penalty shootout to Championship side, Middlesbrough, after wasting golden opportunities during the first half that also saw Cristiano Ronaldo miss a penalty.United’s only chance of winning any trophy this season is now the Champions League where they face Atletico Madrid in the round of 16.
