Manchester United

From Moyes to mouse. After getting rid of their former manager last season, Manchester United must now get rid of a mice infestation at Old Trafford.


The unwanted guests have been spotted in the north and south stand of the famous stadium.

It's not the first time the rodents have been seen running free at the home of the 20-times champions.

In 2006, during an FA Cup tie against Burton Albion, the Burton players complained about the issue and maybe this was to blame for their 5-0 thrashing.

Manchester City were next to have to put up with the miniature pests in 2009 during the Manchester derby. Now, we don't know about you, but we'd rather be branded a 'noisy neighbour' than the 'ones with mice'...!

The mice also clearly have a love for Londoners after making an appearance during a Premier League game against West Ham in 2010 and then running out again in 2013 for a game against Arsenal.

Now if there's one place you definitely don't want mice, it's anywhere around food, and that's exactly what happened when the rodents were found in the canteen in the Stretford End.

They really are making thmselves at home and have also been found in staff offices in the ground...oh dear!

Louis van Gaal's United are away at Cambridge United on Friday night in the FA Cup fourth round and their next home game is against Leicester City in the league at the end of the month.

Will this problem work for or against the Red Devils?
