Manchester: Police have been forced to warn people not to waste their time after a Manchester United fan rang 999 to complain about Nani's sending-off against Real Madrid in their Champions League clash on Tuesday night.
The controversial red card was the talking point of the match and an 18-year-old boy in Nottinghamshire felt it was so offensive that he phoned the police to report it as a crime. He later apologised for the call, claiming to have been caught up in the excitement.
The fan, who has not been named, called police at about 21:20 GMT during United's second leg clash against the Spanish giants. The game turned after the dismissal of Portuguese winger Nani - with Real Madrid scoring two quick goals to win the match 2-1, knocking United out of the competition 3-2 on aggregate.
