United Release Statement Clearing Things Up About Busby And His Old Trafford Plaque

Blown out of proportion...


Manchester United fans woke up this morning to the shocking reports that a plaque with the name of legendary manager Sir Matt Busby had been removed from Old Trafford. 

Not only that but Busby's family had been told that they were no longer welcome to sit in the directors' box. 

Of course, with the internet being the internet, people were duly outraged:

There was even a petition set up ordering the club to reinstate the Great Man's family as confusion raged as to what actually went down. 

This afternoon, a poster on popular United forum RedCafe.net moved to clear matters up:

It appears to be a perfectly reasonable explanation. 

This afternoon, United appeared to back up this theory by releasing a statement which said:

“The club continues to provide tickets and hospitality for the descendants of Sir Matt but with the passing of his children that hospitality will continue in the Warwick Suite.” 

So that's that cleared up. Phew.
