Manchester United football club of England have sent their condolences to the families of football fans who died while watching Thursday night’s UEFA Europa League quarter final match with Anderlecht in Calabar, Nigeria.
Recall that no fewer than 30 persons lost their lives after an electric pole fell on the roof of the viewing centre where they were watching the match.
Manchester United wrote on their official twitter handle on Friday,
“Our thoughts go out to the United fans, their friends and families affected by the tragedy in Calabar, Nigeria, yesterday.
In Nigeria fans always gather at viewing centers to watch football matches for a fee, as most either cannot afford the high cable television subscription fees or prefer to watch with other fans.
