It Turns Out The Manchester United Clamping Incident Was Just A Prank

Yesterday, we reported that the Manchester United team bus was clamped outside the Marker Hotel in Dublin.

The Red Devils were in the capital to for their pre-season friendly with Italian side Sampdoria, which they won 2-1, and seemed to get into a bit of bother in the lead-up to the game. 

However, according to the Irish Independent, the situation was a result of some classic Dublin messin' from a clamper at the Marker Hotel. 

A spokeswoman for the club said:

"It was just a prank. Some guy pretended to clamp the bus and took a picture."

Surely we're not the only ones a bit disappointed that this wasn't real? With United's arch-rivals Liverpool in Dublin this weekend let's hope there's some sort of genuine hijinks to keep us entertained.
