ManU fans blasted for selling memorial Munich scarves on eBayFebruary 12th, 2008 - 6:41 pm ICT by admin
London, Feb.12 (ANI): Some fans of Manchester United have reacted angrily to the news of some other fans of the club putting memorial scarves given at Old Trafford to mark the Munich air crash up for sale on eBay.
The red and white scarves were handed out at Sunday’s derby game as the club commemorated the 50th anniversary of the crash that killed eight of the fabled Busby Babes.
Some of the scarves were being flogged on the internet auction site within hours, with some going for more than 100 pounds.
The sales sparked fury among die-hard fans.
Fans said they were disgusted and disappointed by the news, The Mirror reported. “It is absolutely disgusting that some people are trying to benefit from such an event.”
Some angry fans tried to scupper the sales by placing bogus bids of up to 15,000 pounds. (ANI)
