CNN’s Madowo teases Man Utd’s Old Trafford with “nicer stadium in Africa” remarks after leaks


CNN reporter Larry Madowo criticized Man Utd for the condition of Old Trafford Stadium.

Madowo, a passionate Arsenal fan, attended the Premier League match between Manchester United and Arsenal on May 12, 2024.

During the game, which Arsenal won 1-0 thanks to Leandro Trossard’s goal, heavy rain exposed significant leaks in the stadium’s roof.

Madowo captured a video of the incident, sparking widespread condemnation among football fans who deemed it unworthy of Manchester United’s stature.

The Kenyan broadcaster captioned the video, “If I hadn’t filmed the Old Trafford waterfall myself, I wouldn’t have believed it. I’ve seen nicer stadiums in Africa.”

Manchester United have been condemned for their poor maintenance of Old Trafford, with Arsenal legend, Martin Keown, describing the leakage as worse than the Manchester United defence.

Arsenal’s hard-fought 1-0 victory over Manchester United has kept the Premier League title race alive until the final day of the season.

While Manchester City remains in pole position to clinch the title with wins in their last two matches, Mikel Arteta’s side has kept the pressure on them throughout the campaign.

The match saw Rasmus Hojlund squander a golden opportunity to put United ahead, but Arsenal capitalised on their chances.

Kai Havertz seized on a defensive lapse from Casemiro to set up Leandro Trossard for the decisive goal.

Although Arsenal looked comfortable in the first half, they faced increased pressure from United after the break. However, substitute Gabriel Martinelli threatened on the counter-attack, and Arsenal’s defence held firm despite United’s late onslaught.

The result means that Arsenal must secure a win against Everton on the final day and hope for a slip-up from Manchester City against either Tottenham or West Ham to have a chance at claiming the title.
