The Backpages: Real Madrid ‘robbed’, ‘cheated’ & ‘stole’ a Champions League win against Manchester United
- March 6, 2013
Nobody does sour grapes quite like the British press.
Manchester United fans find themselves comforted this Wednesday morning by a unanimous set of paper headlines which agree that the Red Devils were unjustly turfed out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.
A series of passionate words are employed across the broadsheet and red-tops to support the notion that Manchester United were robbed, cheated, wronged and roundly victimised at Old Trafford last night.
For the record, despite Jose Mourinho’s post match charm offensive that “the better team lost”, the match stats all seemed to be in Real Madrid’s favour.
