West Ham co-owner claims Man United bus was not attacked

West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has unbelievably claimed that Manchester United’s bus was not attacked by fans ahead of the Boleyn Ground’s final game last night.

The Man United bus was stuck in the crowd outside the stadium, with pictures and videos showing fans throwing objects causing a lot of damage to the vehicle.

And the incident made the bus arrive to the Boleyn Ground late, resulting in the game being postponed by 45 minutes.

However, somehow Sullivan is adamant that the bus was never under any threat from the supporters, citing that there was no damage and that the Red Devils were lucky the match was agreed to be postponed.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live(via The Sun): “It’s depressing really, it will be a late night for our fans and some of them won’t be able to stay.

“I don’t understand why United couldn’t get here at 4pm. They could have got here early. They knew it would be busy. It’s crazy.

“There was congestion in the street and they couldn’t get the coach in. There were people around the coach, but there was no attack on the coach.

“If you check the coach there won’t be any damage to it. If we arrived late at Old Trafford they wouldn’t put the kick-off back.”

Louis van Gaal’s men needed a victory over the Hammers to secure a top four spot, but in an epic encounter West Ham came from 2-1 down to score two goals in the 76th and 81st minute and win 3-2.
