Wayne Rooney and others fall for hoax of Man Utd scarf on the Kop

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney was among those who fell for a hoax claiming that a United fan had been on the Kop during yesterday’s game.

A picture was doing the rounds on social media after the match that appeared to show a United supporter standing with his United scarf aloft while surrounded by Liverpool fans.

Rooney passed comment after seeing the image.

He said: “Very happy tonight. Fans were amazing. @juanmata8 great goals. Should of let him take penalty. And the United fan in the kop. Brilliant.”

But the photo turned out to be a fake. It actually showed Liverpool fans watching their team during a game against Birmingham City in 2011. The United fan wasn’t at Anfield at all – he had been photographed on the street in Bangkok during a pre-season tour.
