The Daily Star has today run a story in which criticism of Manchester United’s team selection for the FA Cup Semi Final is made. The story quotes an "FC United Executive" and attributes various comments allegedly made by this "executive".

No spokesperson for FC United made these comments.

John Mahoney of the Daily Star did contact FC United on Monday evening hoping for a comment. It was made clear to Mr Mahoney that we would not be commenting. Nor were any ’off-the-record’ quotes provided and crucially nothing was even said that could have been interpreted as such.

An FC United Spokesperson said:

"For those of us involved at the time, there was a policy in IMUSA that we would never comment on team selection, which was a policy that served us well and won us respect. FC United are not about to start now".

FC United are today taking legal advice and will demand a full retraction and apology from the Daily Star.
