Manchester United fan forced to take off shirt at Liverpool training session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This happened when a Manchester United fan showed up at a Liverpool training session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on July 15th, 2011.
A Manchester United fan pushed his luck a little too far when he showed up at the Liverpool training session at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil wearing the Red Devils kit.
Liverpool fans saw red and he was lucky to get away with only losing his shirt.
A video captured at the training session on Thursday and later uploaded on YouTube showed a young man clad in his Rooney No 10 jersey, surrounded by hordes of Liverpool fans, including women, seated directly in front of him.
He resisted attempts to strip him, but his jersey was eventually lifted off in front of a crowd yelling “Buka! Buka!” (“Take it off!”).
He refused to put on the Liverpool jersey, even as it was forcibly put over his head, and sat stone-faced and shirtless for a moment before he was led away from the jeering fans.
However, the Reds still failed to get him to wear their kit as he was later seen in the video wearing a yellow Malaysia jersey.
Liverpool fans who were nearby as the spectacle unfolded said he was asking for trouble.
“He can come to watch, but he should have known better with the rivalry between the two clubs,” said Zuliantie Dzul, 29.
“He was showing off his jersey, making sure everybody saw him,” said Tommy Lim, 27.
I myself is a Liverpool fan since birth and i couldn't understand why this particular Manchester United fan deliberately offended Liverpool fans.
Did he know that Liverpool is the Champion of Europe, Darling of England, Pride of Merseyside, Star of England and managed to turn Istanbul into Turkish Delights in the 2005 Champions league final???
Did that Manchester United fan know that Liverpool is an 18 time winner of the English Premier League and a 5 times winner of the European Cup/Champions League?
Liverpool forever.... you will never walk alone..
Liverpool is scheduled to take on the Malaysian XI in their Asian pre-seasion tour at 5.45 pm Malaysian time at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Saturday, 16th July 2011.
Earlier, Liverpool beat Guangdong 4-3 in their friendly in China.
