Manchester United is currently reviewing CCTV footage to identify a member of their fans who threw objects onto the pitch after their 1-0 loss to Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid. Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simone was pelted with missiles including bottles after the final whistle at OId Trafford.
Uefa Investigating United over Throwing Object at Simone
Uefa is currently waiting for reports from match observers before deciding whether to place a charge on the English Premier League club. Throwing objects onto the field of play is against ground regulations and is subject to a three-year ban.
Manchester United was knocked out of the Uefa Champions League following a 2-1 defeat on aggregate to the Spanish club. The result thwarted United’s hopes of ending a five-year trophy drought, meaning they are on their longest run without silverware since the period between FA Cup wins in 1977 and 1983.
Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simone after the match in a press conference said the reason why Cristiano Ronaldo has been able to knock him out of the Champions League was because of the types of classic midfielders in his team. Atletico is now through to the next stage of the competition while Man United is out to focus on making a top-four finish to help them secure a Champions League place next season.
