United Agree Compensation

Football - Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United Carling Cup Final
It has been confirmed that Man United will compensate Barnsley after some United ransacked the kiosks and threatened the young teenage (mainly female) staff. It has been estimated that the ‘fans’ caused £10,000 worth of damage.

United did win the match 2-0 and now hopefully things are all sorted and United can concentrate on beating Tottenham Hotspur in the next round.

"Manchester United have been very sensible and have met the whole costs for what happened. They have generously agreed to pay us £10,000, the cost of the damage," Barnsley director Don Rowing told The Sheffield Star.

"It's a very generous gesture and I applaud them. In this day and age we shouldn't have to tolerate what is tantamount to robbery with violence.

"I would stress that it was a small number who caused the problems, they are not Manchester United fans in the true sense.

"I said at the time, and I'll say again, there is no place in our society for scum who break the rules.

"Our catering staff suffered a real ordeal. It was a horrible experience, something they shouldn't have to face when they are just doing the job."
