Man Utd fans get into party spirit early with PLENTY of pints with rammed Gdansk bars ahead of Europa League final
MANCHESTER UNITED fans have been getting into the party spirit in Gdansk ahead of tonight's Europa League final.
The Red Devils will be backed by 2,000 travelling supporters from England tonight, as they face Villarreal in the Baltic city.
And as fans starved of European travel have arrived in the city, they've been quick to revel in the adventure and have a good time.
A great number have been seen enjoying Gdansk's bars.
And no shortage of pints have been consumed in the city centre.
Plenty of United red has seen around town, while songs of yesteryear have also been sung.
Some fans have even mingled with their Villarreal counterparts, with Anglo-Spanish relations in Poland believed to have been mostly friendly and cordial.
Among United fans that have flown over for the match is club legend Wayne Rooney.
The Red Devils' all-time leading goalscorer and current Derby County manager will be in the stands tonight to cheer on his former side.
Three supporters suffered minor injuries last night, after being attacked in a bar.

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.”
BBC reporter Simon Stone says the trouble was not between rival fans and the mood between the two sets of supporters is 'good natured'.
United fans will hope that club icon Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can win his first silverware as manager of the club tonight, 22 years to the day since his Champions League final heroics against Bayern Munich in Barcelona.
But the Norwegian has been at pains to play down the significance of the date.
He said: "No, I don't even think about that. Always think forward, always focus on making the right decision for the club, the players and this team.
"I never think of my own CV, definitely not. That's never been on my mind at all."
