Manchester United’s era of despair keeps on continuing despite the board spending more than a billion pounds on the overhaul. Ever since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013, the Red Devils have continued to fall from the pinnacle of English football.
United’s current season opened on a historic low as they lost their first two matches against minnow teams. After losing 2-0 to Brighton in the season opener, the Harry Maguire-led team got an embarrassing defeat in the second by Brentford. A 0-4 loss in that match have dampened the hopes of a resurgence to the top under newly appointed coach Erik Ten Hag.
No wonder, United fans are doing everything in their ability to help their team get back to winning ways- even pleading with Lord Krishna!
In a video that is getting viral, Alex Ellis, a British High Commissioner to India, met one such fan at the ISKON temple in Delhi. A video tweeted by Ellis shows him interacting with a Manchester United fan and is captioned, “Met a Man United fan at the ISKON Delhi temple searching (understandably) for divine intervention.”

The video shows Ellis chatting with a United fan wearing a Manchester United shirt at the temple and jokes, “To believe that Manchester United are going to win requires an act of faith.”
The young fan says, “Now I’ve come to the temple so Lord Krishna would I think allow Manchester United to win.”
To which Ellis wittily replies, “Lord Krishna has a great sense of humour.”
The young fan with great hopes says, “Maybe he can play for us in the centre midfield.”
Manchester United are to play Liverpool in their next Premier League game on August 23rd. A large section of United supporters have threatened to boycott the upcoming match as a statement against the Glazers. The same match last year was marred in controversy as United supporters stormed the pitch and the match had to be postponed.
