    Surely not a victim till his story is proven? Not saying its not true, but still?

    I didnt get the connect with Man Utd, except that he made a trip here. Weren't all his abuses done by people from his school or whatever religious institutions he mentions

    The connection is that he and a bunch of others were on trial and during the trial he was abused at the hotel he was staying at. Therefor the connection here is two-fold. It involves the football culture in that there are coaches or people associated with some clubs that have been taking advantage of their position. The second part is that Manchester United and abuse in the same headline sells.

    As for the club itself there's nothing in the story alleging that the club itself was involved from what I can tell.

    I think you are missing the point, whilst showing a huge lack of empathy.

    Not missing the point at all. Just not afraid to make a valid point.
