Manchester United players are set to be questioned by club officials over allegations that members of the team filmed an unnamed team-mate having a sex act performed on him by a woman in a toilet cubicle.

The Sun on Sunday claimed several of United's star players were involved and that the incident took place in a nightclub in Manchester. It's alleged that players took footage on their mobile phones by putting them over and under the toilet cubicle.

It is also alleged that the footage is now being passed around the Old Trafford dressing room.

'Disgusting behaviour'

The woman at the centre of the allegation is quoted as saying: "I have been crying my eyes out and I am not going to go into the details about it now."

Another source added: “They were in the toilets with the doors closed, but other players were filming over the top of the door.

"The girl has also been told there was someone filming from underneath. It’s disgusting behaviour."

Greater Manchester Police have not yet started any investigation however as they have yet to receive a complaint.

Van Gaal headache

It is an incident United manager Louis Van Gaal could do without, as he tries to prepare his side for Wednesday's game against Burnley at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal's team have been criticised by West Ham manager Sam Allardyce as a 'long-ball team' after the sides 1-1 draw on Sunday.

The Dutchman rejected these claims at his press conference on Tuesday by saying: "I am sorry, you are saying what is not happening.

"We are playing ball possession play and after 70 minutes (at West Ham) we did not succeed, in spite of many chances in the second half - so then I changed my playing style."

He then proceeded to hand out statistics sheets from the match to the media who were present to demonstrate his point.

Van Gaal added: "I give you these stats. You can copy it and then maybe you can go to Big Sam and he will get a good interpretation."
