Manchester United fans have organised an FA Cup final ticket for a supporter who travelled all the way from Sierra Leone only to miss United’s game against Bournemouth due to a fake bomb.

The supporter, who was identified only as Moses, was one of 76,000 fans ordered to leave the stadium minutes before United’s final Barclays Premier League game of the season.

Moses had been invited by friends at the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST), who offered to buy him a later return flight home and organise a ticket for the FA Cup final at Wembley next weekend.

Ian Stirling, vice-chair of MUST, told the Daily Mail: “A friend of mind worked with Moses out in Sierra Leone and he said he should come over some time for a game.”

We were at the MUST House having a few drinks before the game when news came out there was a suspect package and the game would be delayed until 3.45pm.

He’s still distraught at not getting in to Old Trafford – that was his dream – but we’re trying to do the right thing for a friend.

Tony Lloyd, the police and crime commissioner for Greater Manchester, has called for an urgent inquiry into how the fake bomb led to the evacuation of Manchester United’s 75,000-seater stadium.

Mr Lloyd said the “fiasco” put thousands of fans’ lives in danger.                 ITV UK
