Are Manchester United responsible for Wembley hole in the wall?

19th April 2011 - Alma Shera

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson looks set to be hit by another Wembley Stadium sting, following the devastating FA Cup semi-final loss to rivals Manchester City last week.

The Football Association (FA) is investigating a hole in the wall of the team's Wembley dressing room, thought to have appeared on Saturday evening.

Reports are suggesting that the damage may have been caused by someone kicking out in frustration at the 1-0 loss, perhaps sparked by Mario Balotelli's apparent taunting of United fans.

There are even suggestions that the Premier League leaders will be required to pay for the repairs to the dressing room, which was subsequently used by Stoke City during their 5-0 win over Bolton in the other FA Cup semi-final.

Despite the post-match fracas, which involved Balotelli and United players Rio Ferdinand and Anderson, both clubs are expected to escape punishment.

United have been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently, with Ferguson currently serving a touchline ban for five football games imposed by the FA, for comments made about referee Martin Atkinson.
