Mumbai: The Mumbai unit of Manchester United Fans Club (MUFC) protested outside the premises of Manchester United Cafe at R-City Mall in city today against the humiliating nature of the 4-0 defeat against MK Dons in the Capital One Cup.
“The performance of the team was horrendous and unacceptable,” said Keshav Kulkarni, President of the Mumbai unit of MUFC.
Speaking exclusively to Faking News, he added, “In the summer, after the appointment of Louis Van Gaal as the manager, there were very high hopes of a major improvement in the performance of the team this season. Everyone was promised Acchey Din. ManU Café had also put up several hoardings and photoshopped images of Van Gaal with the tag line ‘Ab ki baar, Van Gaal Sarkaar’. But despite the huge amounts spent on player transfers, we still lose to lower league teams like MK Dons, who unlike us, have no history. Kab aayenge acche din?”
“Even David Moyes had better results than this!” protested another disgruntled supporter, echoing the mood amongst the gathered masses. A few distraught fans even broke down in tears amidst the protests.
On the condition of anonymity a sobbing fan said, “We watch every match at Man U Cafe paying for overpriced food and beer. We deserve better than this. How will I be able to face the taunts of Liverpool and Chelsea fans at work tomorrow?”
The protesters were later pacified by the management of ManU Cafe who promised everyone a fake jersey of their latest signing Ángel di María. Di María, who joined Manchester United for a British record transfer fee of £59.7 M from Real Madrid is supposedly on wages of £150k per week.
“It has indeed been a meteoric rise for the Argentine winger who was last seen in the Anil Kapoor starrer Slumdog Millionaire,” Keshav Kulkarni said.
Keshav later sent out a rhetorical meaningless tweet to the Manchester United official twitter handle using the hashtag #accheydin. This was promptly retweeted by AAP spokesperson Ashutosh83B and soon it had around 49k retweets, mostly by AAP supporters.
