The brother of Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf was allegedly assaulted outside Eastlands after the dramatic injury-time win over Manchester City on Saturday.

Abdul Biram Diouf was reportedly set upon by a group of City fans as he was leaving the stadium following Paul Scholes' late winner which re-ignited the race for the Barclays Premier League title, but escaped without the need for medical treatment.

The United forward's agent, Jim Solbakken, told the Daily Mail: "There was an incident after the match. He was attacked from behind by some Manchester City supporters as he was walking away from the ground."

Solbakken added: "Fortunately there was no need for medical treatment and he got away without any serious injuries."
