A number of fans, including United and England legend Wayne Rooney, have flown over to watch the action live.

However, three supporters suffered minor injuries after they were attacked in a bar yesterday.

A United statement confirmed: “Club staff were assisting a number of United fans in Gdansk last night and today after an incident where some of our supporters were attacked outside a bar in the city.”

Roughly 2,000 United fans are travelling to Gdansk for the clash against the Spanish side.

Fights reportedly broke out in the city centre on Tuesday evening.

The trouble occurred outside a bar in the Polish city as chairs were smashed while bottles and glasses were also thrown.
