Man Utd bus attack


A video has been uploaded to Twitter showing how the Manchester United players reacted during the incident on the way to Upton Park this evening, when their bottles and cans were thrown in the direction of their bus in ugly scenes.

The match was delayed by 45 minutes because of the incident, as the coach arrived at the ground ahead of the final fixture at the ground.

A number of players including Jesse Lingard, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, England internationals Michael Carrick and Phil Jones and Belgium international Adnan Januzaj are visible in the video.

Wayne Rooney said the United bus “got smashed up” as he arrived at Upton Park before the delayed kick-off.

"It wasn't nice. The coach got smashed up, but we're here now, so have to prepare for the game and go out and do our job”.

“I'm sure you'll see the images. That's not for me to say, but I think it was disappointing of course. We know it's a big game for West Ham, big night for them, leaving the stadium, but I'm sure West Ham as a club will be disappointed with what the fans have done."

The video has surfaced on Twitter showing some of the reactions by the United players to the incident:

Manager Louis van Gaal said: "What do I have to tell? The images tell everything. I have seen also the police were taping. It is also a lot of emotions for people but for us it is the second time in London we have to start later. It is better than last time because we have received our preparation .
