London, July 29 : Players of Manchester United were stuck on a tour bus while their driver was hauled away by police in Shanghai, according to a report.
After the driver was forced off the bus for police questioning for traveling on the wrong lane, the bus, clearly touting the team name, was quickly surrounded by hoards of fans wanting a photo of the team.
"All the players and the manager thought it was hilarious. They couldn't believe it. I think a lot of other traffic could not get past, so there was a bit of a situation," the Daily Mail quoted a source, as saying.
The driver was released about 15 minutes later and greeted by cheers from the team as he hopped back on board, the paper said.
"I think the driver might have talked himself out of it with the police. He got back on the bus and everyone started cheering," the source added.
The Red Devils reportedly started singing, "We'll drive where we want, we'll drive where we want, we're Man United, we'll drive where we want," adapting the words of a famous Old Trafford chant, it added.
The team was on its way to a Hublot charity dinner and fashion show for the Manchester United Foundation as part of their pre-season tour to South Africa and China.
