MANCHESTER UNITED fans were shocked when a small section of the ceiling at Old Trafford collapsed and fell on them during a match.

The Red Devils suffered a 3-1 defeat against Manchester City in the Women’s Super League on Sunday.

Katie Zelem scored the decisive point with a penalty in the 21st minute before Jill Roord and Lauren Hemp turned the game on its head within seconds.

Khadija Shaw then took advantage of a lack of concentration in the United defense to secure all three points for Man City.

It was a disappointing day for Man Utd fans, but things got worse for some when a piece of Old Trafford’s ceiling collapsed on them.

One person recorded it X to share three photos of the damage.

They wrote: “If you ever need more evidence that Old Trafford is actually collapsing…parts of ceiling from Block N2402 fell on two fans during the women’s game today…absolute shitshow.”

In the pictures you can see cracks in the ceiling and remains of concrete on the floor.

Fans were quick to comment on the shocking images, with one person writing: “The council needs to close off parts of the site.”

Another added: “The Glazers’ neglect of Old Trafford is becoming a real health and safety issue.”


While a third commented: “The stadium needs some proper structural work, not just Jim Ratcliffe coming in and giving the green light for some filler and paint.”

Fans were also angry recently after a leak in the stadium’s roof left them soaked.

New minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is understood to be ready to pump almost £250 MILLION into the club to improve Old Trafford’s infrastructure.

United legend Gary Neville recently described the iconic stadium as a “theatre of nothing” due to the club’s poor form in the Premier League and Champions League.
