According to GMP Manchester North, a sozzled fan from the Crumpsall area of North Manchester rang the emergency services at 22:30 that night, “demanding to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson” about the result.
After it was tweeted by Greater Manchester Police, listen to the complete Manchester United 999 call for Sir Alex Ferguson below:

The northern Police service kindly remind us:
Obviously, it can be a sad and depressing moment when you’re football team loses a game, however can we all please remember that 999 is to be used for emergencies only. For any other police related enquiries that are not an emergency, you can ring 101.
If you would like to speak to Sir Alex about recent football results we here at GMP Manchester North can only suggest you try ringing Manchester United FC directly as you will probably (not definitely) have a much better chance of getting through to him there rather than ringing the police.
