MANCHESTER UNITED fans celebrated thumping Nottingham Forest so much that the advertising hoardings COLLAPSED – sending themselves tumbling to the ground.
The travelling Red Devils fans rejoiced as Bruno Fernandes drilled in their third goal to all but seal United’s place in the Carabao Cup final at half-time in the two-legged semi-final tie.
But as the Portuguese playmaker ran across to take in the adulation, the supporters pushed forward so much that the barrier gave way.
And that prompted all the fans on the front row to stack it – before one steward also went flying.
Gary Neville was on commentary for the clash in the East Midlands and was concerned about the safety of the stadium.
He said: “It’s not pleasant to watch that for a moment or two, but it looks like everyone is okay.”
Fernandes’ fine low finish capped a perfect night for Erik ten Hag.
Marcus Rashford and Wout Weghorst scored either side of Sam Surridge’s disallowed goal to make it 2-0 by the break.
And any slim hopes Forest had of getting back into the tie in the second leg at Old Trafford were dashed when skipper Fernandes sealed the deal.
