The older brother of Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf was attacked outside Eastlands on Saturday afternoon. Luckily, he escaped serious injury.
Reports claim that Abdul Biram Diouf, 28, was punched and kicked and then thrown into a bush by a group of irate Man City fans as he left the stadium after United’s last-gasp 1-0 win. Nobody has been arrested in connection with the assault but his attackers were heard shouting “Munich” in reference to the Munich air disaster.
At the time, Abdul was wearing his little brother’s shirt from the League Cup final.
I can understand if City fans were gutted to lose to the Manc derby to another late goal, but shame on the pindicked meatheads who did this. (To call them fans is an insult to the vast majority.)
