"The result is all wrong. They had extra time and it was a
total and utter load of rubbish," the male caller complained
after dialing 999 and asking to be put through to Ferguson.
The call was made to police in the northern English city a few
minutes after United lost to Sunderland on penalties at Old
"If you would like to speak to Sir Alex about recent football
results we here at GMP Manchester North can only suggest you try
ringing Manchester United FC directly," local police said in a
statement on their Facebook page.
The loss to Sunderland was the latest blow to last season's
champions United who are struggling to adapt to life under new
manager David Moyes.
