MANCHESTER United’s players have realised they forgot to take the EFL trophy home from Wembley, even though it is so important to them.
Jubilation soon turned to mild embarrassment as United were forced to call lost property offices across the capital in the hope of finding England’s third most important club trophy.
Jose Mourinho said: “I remember lifting it and then passing it on to someone else, and after that I pretty much forgot all about it. I presumed one of the lads had put it in their bag.
“Still nobody will ever forget that moment of slight pleasure at the final whistle, that was the kind of thing you tell your grandchildren about.”
Midfielder Paul Pogba said: “I honestly thought we’d won the FA Cup, but then they handed us this thing that looked like it’d come out of a Kinder egg.”
