Manchester United to honour Electrocuted Nigerians at Old Trafford

Manchester United have confirmed that the electrocuted Nigerian fans who lost their lives while watching an Europa League match between Manchester United and Anderlecht in Calabar will be remembered at the Old Trafford when they host Swansea in a league fixture on Sunday.

They had gathered at a popular viewing center when a transformer nearby exploded twice with a high tension wire dropping on the structure built with zinc.

The club announced that Jose Mourinho’s side will wear black armbands to pay tribute to the victims of the tragedy.

“The #MUFC players will wear black armbands on Sunday in memory of the seven fans who lost their lives recently in Calabar, Nigeria,” the club tweeted.
