The Champions League group stage match between FC Copenhagen and Manchester United certainly stirred strong emotions amongst supporters. As the match unfolded, the Danes triumphed over the Red Devils, managing to secure a win by scoring a critical goal in the last few minutes. This outcome deeply agitated one Manchester United fan.

The match was a rollercoaster of emotions, with Manchester United initially leading 2:0 in Denmark's capital. It may have seemed like a clear path to victory; however, that wasn't quite the case as everything took a turn towards the end of the first half.

Manchester's Marcus Rashford was handed a red card, putting Copenhagen at an advantage, which they leveraged to tie the game. After the break, Manchester managed to regain the lead, but in the end, the Danes, with Kamil Grabara among their ranks, claimed a 4:3 victory.

The goal that sealed the match was scored in the 87th minute, much to the dismay of a particularly passionate Manchester United supporter who was streaming the match. The fan's fury was outwardly obvious as he repeatedly slammed his fist onto a table, threw a mascot plushie, toppled over a chair, and ultimately collapsed on the floor, showcasing his disappointment (an image of this can be seen below the article).

The video quickly gained popularity, attracting a multitude of comments on the live stream and amassing two million views on the unidentified streaming platform referred to as "X".

The widespread frustration among Manchester United's fans stems from a lackluster season, with the team currently ranking last after four rounds in the Champions League group stage. They trail behind Copenhagen and Galatasaray, while Bayern Munich comfortably secures their advancement.
