Manchester United Players To Wear Black Armbands On Sunday In Memory Of Calabar Victims

Manchester United players will on Sunday when they take on Swansea at Old Trafford wear black armbands to mourn the seven fans that died at a viewing centre in Calabar, Cross River state, Nigeria.

This disclosure was made today in a tweet by the club’s official Twitter handle (@Manutd).

Last Friday, the Premier League giants sent condolences to the football fans that died in Calabar while watching the club’s Europa League clash on Thursday night.

It is understood that the football fans assembled at the centre to watch the second leg of the UEFA Europa League quarter-final match between Manchester United and Anderlecht on satellite television when the live electricity cable broke from its mooring and fell on them.

It was earlier gathered that over 30 people lost their lives, however, an official report from the state police claimed that the high-tension cable which fell inside the viewing centre killed only seven people with several others injured.

Manchester United won the match 3-2 aggregate, with Marcus Rashford netting the winner in the 107th minute.
