So Who Is Bugging Man Utd?

So Who Is Bugging Man Utd?

Blimey, never a dull moment is there? Looks like someone has been bugging Alex Ferguson and the team; and no, I don't mean the constant press questions! An actual bug has been found in Utd's Old Trafford dressing room. It seems a Sun reporter was offered the tapes that resulted from the bug. A police investigation could ensue.

Head of Communications Phil Townsend said 'We have launched our own investigation and if necessary will involve the police.' He admits the investigation is in its 'early stages'.

It could prove very difficult to track down the person who planted the bug though, as Old Trafford has over 200 000 visitors a year and tours include the home dressing room! The tapes were recorded last week ahead of the crunch game against Chelsea.

According to a report in the Sun, they include pre-match and half time team talks as well as post match celebrations. They also include Sir Alex giving players tips and encouragement as well as the players cheering when Fergie swore during his post match Sky interview and jeering when Mourinho was interviewed! Oh, and Rio was caught asking another player what plans he had for the evening. All very fascinating I'm sure. Wonder what plans the player did have!!?!!
