Nobody is above the law after all, except it’s in a lawless society.
Security staff at Old Trafford had to do a thorough check on Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward on Tuesday evening before the man responsible for big name signings and world record endorsement deals could be granted access into the ground ahead of Bournemouth clash.
The game had been rescheduled after a ‘suspect package’ believed to be a bomb wired to a mobile phone was found in one of the toilets at the stadium on Saturday prior to kick-off which triggered a ‘code red’ alert and subsequent evacuation.
As a result, security officials at the entrance showed no one preferential treatment in what happens to be a matter of life and death and were forced to search one of the club’s biggest masquerade at the door as he arrived.
Woodward was pictured with his hands in the air as a steward patted him down at the door as part of a routine search before the United chief made his way into the stadium.
United won’t be playing in the Champions League next season except they score 19 unreplied goals against Eddie Howe’s side tonight which is practically and humanly impossible.
Up next for Louis van Gaal’s side is the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
