'Killer Man Utd Fan' Rams Barcalona Crowd....Kills four people

'Killer Man Utd Fan' Rams Barca Crowd
1:55pm UK, Thursday May 28, 2009

A Manchester United fan killed four people in Nigeria when he drove into Barcelona supporters after his team lost the Champions League final, police have said.

A minibus rammed into a crowd, in the town of Ogbo, that was celebrating Barca's victory after the Wednesday night match.

A further 10 people were injured and the driver was arrested, a police spokeswoman said.

"The driver had passed the crowd then made a U-turn and ran into them," she added.

Barcelona beat Manchester United 2-0 in what was hailed as a "dream final" between two of Europe's best clubs.

Their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Barcelona seemed a combination of United's own failure to perform and the Spaniards' brand of incisive football.

Both teams have large fan bases in Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation.

Earlier this month, an Arsenal fan in Africa hanged himself when his team lost 3-1 to United in the Champions League Semi Final.

The body of Suleiman Alphonso Omondi, a 29-year-old Kenyan from Nairobi, was found at his home just hours after his heroes slumped out of the competition.

Police confirmed football-mad Mr Omondi was wearing his Arsenal shirt when he took his own life.

In Kenya, English clubs enjoy a passionate following among the locals.

European games, in particular the UEFA Champions League, attract more attention than national and continental fixtures.

Can you believe these sort of people??? All in the name of FOOTBALL!!! FFS!
