Manchester U.’s Rio Ferdinand Drilled With Coin By Man. City Fan [VIDEO]

||


How do U.K. soccer fans get a post on Busted Coverage? All Manchester City fans needed to do yesterday was pelt Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand with coins after Robin van Persie scored the game-winner near the end of the Manchester derby match.

So how do police prevent maniac fans from emptying their pockets on soccer superstars?

A Daily Mail columnist has brought up this idea:

I think it’s time we brought in netting to deal with this around the corner flags and certainly behind the goals. When there was fencing up at old grounds you could hear the coins hitting the fencing. It was all part of the intimidation back then but safety has to be paramount. You cannot ever completely stop it, and you cannot have nets at every ground in the lower leagues, but it will surely help as a deterrent.

Meanwhile, Ferdinand tweeted:

This is what a coin can do to a guy’s face.
