OFF THE POST: Of Mice and Man U
January 27th, 2006 8:36AM



Burton players complained of rodents after being routed, 5-0, by Manchester United at Old Trafford in a third-round FA Cup replay.

''Every time I looked down I saw a mouse,'' Ryan Austin, a defender for the minor league club told the Times of London. ''There were loads of them.''

Man U spokesman Phil Townsend said: ''We're between a canal and a railway line, so the amount of debris around here, such as food wrappers, is a source of concern.''

But a spokeswoman from the club downplayed the mouse menace in the Manchester Evening News: ''Like all public places, from time-to-time, we do find mice near or inside the stadium. When they are found they are dealt with as a matter of course. There is no mice problem at Manchester United.''

The Telegraph reported that Man U coach Alex Ferguson was queried about the mice at a press conference and replied with: ''There are enough rats in this room, for sure.''
