Two Manchester United fans, aged 7 and 9 were escorted out of the Villa park after stewards found out that they were sitting in the wrong benches.
During Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Paul Lambert’s men, a rather strange event occurred when two visiting fans were asked to leave the stadium by stewards for celebrating Radamel Falcao’s equalizing goal during the second half.
However, it was later found out that the youngsters were asked to leave the premises because they were sitting in the wrong end of the stadium which was designated for the home fans. However, the boys’ father was not very impressed with the way the stewards turfed out his kids from the stadium.
Mr. Lawrie from Birmingham called into BBC Radio Five Live’s 606 post match phone in and vented out his anger at the treatment the family suffered.
The call was conducted by Darren Fletcher and Robbie Savage in which Mr. Lawrie explained what happened during the game.
“We were only allowed to stay in the ground for 53 minutes because stewards decided to kick out a seven-year-old and nine-year-old boy.”
The understandably furious father also revealed that the stewards even threatened his family to take the matter to police if they did not vacate the premises.
