PETALING JAYA - A MALAYSIAN Manchester United fan pushed his luck a little too far when he showed up at the Liverpool training session at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil wearing the Red Devils' kit on Thursday.
A video on YouTube showed a young man clad in his Rooney No 10 jersey, surrounded by hordes of Liverpool fans, including women, seated directly in front of him.
He resisted attempts to strip him, but his jersey was eventually lifted off in front of a crowd yelling 'Buka! Buka!' ('Take it off!').
He refused to put on the Liverpool jersey, even as it was forcibly put over his head, and sat stone-faced and shirtless for a moment before he was led away from the jeering fans.
Liverpool fans said he was asking for trouble.
'He can come to watch, but he should have known better with the rivalry between the two clubs,' said Zuliantie Dzul, 29. -- THE STAR/ANN
