Manchester United v Olympiakos: United fans told to 'expect defeat'... by a road sign
The image began circulating on Twitter yesterday
Manchester United fans are being urged to be optimistic ahead of tonight's Champions League game against Olympiakos.
Their side trail the Greek side 2-0 after the first-leg and with their hopes of finishing in the top-four of the Premier League all but over and having been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions, this is their final chance to salvage something from a woeful season.
However, for those approaching Old Trafford by car, there's something that might dent their confidence.
An image that appeared on Twitter shows an electric road sign warning road users about tonight's game, plus taking the opportunity for a dig at United's chances.
It reads: "Football Match, Wed 19th Mar, Kick Off 19:45, Expect defeat"
The image was posted by Liverpool-based radion station Juice FM, hinting it was very likely photoshopped. But based on the dismal 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, some might say the message is very real.
