Nani and Danny Welbeck forget their passports for Amsterdam trips
Footballers, eh? Not the brightest bunch we are sure you will agree. But you would have thought that after playing this season in the Champions League, Manchester United’s players would be used to having the basics ready for an away trip in Europe – Pants, check. Louis Vuitton washbag, check. Dr Beats headphones, check.
Unfortunately for Nani and Danny Welbeck, they committed the schoolboy error of forgetting their passports when the team flew to Amsterdam for their Europa League game against Ajax.
In true footballer style, however, the two players were able to wait around at the airport whilst members of the Manchester United security team went back to the players’ houses to get their ID. Such a delay allowed fans to snap their heroes, and Ferguson was eventually able to board the flight with his 20-man squad intact.
