Drunk Manchester United fan calls police to speak to Sir Alex

Manchester United's season to date has been enough to drive a sane person to drink - and last night it didn't get much better.

But for one Manchester United fan the defeat to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup semi-final was just a step to far.

After one too many alcoholic beverages the intoxicated Manchester United fan called the police "to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson".

The Greater Manchester Police posted on their Facebook page: "Last night, at approximately 22:30pm a man from the Crumpsall area of North Manchester rang 999 in a drunken state demanding to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson about last night's result."

Predictably, but still no less funny, the first comment on the post said: "Was it David Moyes?"

That comment had 41 likes alone at the time of publication.

As you can see from the post above, the police force went on to make it clear that while it might be quite funny, it is also a massive waste of police time.

And anyway, the best way of getting through to Sir Alex Ferguson is probably through Manchester United, rather than bobbies on the beat.

It sounds like a pretty desperate call, and to be fair it was a pretty desperate result for David Moyes and his United squad last night.

They won 2-1 on the night, but lost 2-1 on penalties to a Sunderland side struggling for their Premier League survival.

So Gus Poyet's side will travel to Wembley to face Manchester City in the final next month.
