Nigerian Manchester United Fan Drives Bus Into Barcelona Supporters, Killing 4

barcelona-fansThere are times when soccer fans just need to take a step back and realize that it’s just a game. This is definitely one of them.

Following yesterday’s 2-0 win by Barcelona over Manchester United in the Champions League Final, Barca fans took to the streets all over the world. While in Barcelona they understandably had a large party and riot, the violence spread elsewhere as well.

One Manchester United fan in Nigeria committed an unthinkable act, driving his bus past a crowd of Barcelona fans, but then making a U-turn and plowing in to them. Four people were killed and another ten were injured.

“He was displaying his anger at his team losing the match. The driver had passed the crowd then made a U-turn and ran into them,” spokesperson Rita Inomey-Abbey said.

It’s a sad day when your team wins a huge match, and you can’t celebrate without fear of someone hitting you with a bus.
