Man United fans leave children terrified as they target a bus full of their own supporters

"We were bringing a group of kids to the game, Manchester United fans"

A BUS full of children were left terrified after Man United fans allegedly hurled bottles and cans at them. 

But the coach of youngsters were actually Red Devils fans themselves, according to unconfirmed social media reports.

The single decker – owned Beeline VIP coaches – was heading to Old Trafford for their crunch Premier League match with arch rivals Liverpool last night/on Monday night (Aug 22).

Video shared online shows furious fans hurling projectiles at the vehicle during heated pre-match protests. 

It’s understood those involved in the violence were not aware the coach was carrying children, and mistakenly believed it was rival fans.

In the footage, the red-shirted crowd can be heard chanting “mmurderers” and “you scouse b******d”.

But a spokesperson for Beeline VIP Coaches fumed: “Many thanks you idiots, we were bringing a group of kids to the game, Manchester United fans.

“All were frightened to death.

“Where we’re the Greater Manchester Police when we needed you to keep the coach and kids safe?”

In a follow-up tweet they included a snap of the back of the bus, emblazoned with a giant symbol of a Manchester bee and the words “Manchester” and “England” beneath in huge letters.

 

The spokesperson said: “Just a shame our coach doesn’t have anything on it showing that it’s from Manchester.

“And therefore would indicate it has Manchester supporters inside. 

“Oh hang on a minute. Maybe they missed it eh?”

Fans raged online about the careless mistake. 

One person said: “Nice. That’s a coach full of kids who never want to go to a match again. 

“Almost forgot – they were United fans as well. They were throwing cans and chanting ‘murderers’ at kids supporting their own club.”

“Am up for things going a little bit further than just a walking protest to the ground but stuff like this and invading the ground if it happened again is just taking it too far.”

Another fan said: “Stuff like this ruins the protest.”

United fans were protesting against their club’s US owners, the Glazer family. 

They beat Liverpool 2-1 to move off the bottom of the league after losing their first two matches of the season.
