A fan of Manchester United won €1250 after accidentally betting on MK Dons to win their 2nd round of the League Cup match against the team of Louis van Gaal.
It has not been the dream debut of a season that the Dutchman Louis van Gaal was wishing for as he took charge of Manchester United replacing David Moyes but things aren’t going as he hoped for. During the opening match of the season United lost against Swansea City and later had to settle with a 1-1 draw against Sunderland.
Things turned even worse for Louis van Gaal after losing 4-0 against the League One club Milton Keynes Dons. However, this defeat was great news for a fan of Manchester United that mistakenly had betted on MK Dons to win the match.
“I don’t really bet only the odd quid here and there but my mate told me she had put on United to win 4-0, so I thought I might as well do that. I also put a pound on us to win 3-0. Well I thought I did but I obviously wasn’t concentrating and clicked the wrong button so I bet on MK Dons.”
When the scoreboard was displaying 3-0, Griffiths stated that she simply stopped watching the match after believing that she had lost the money but after going back to her betting app it was a different story.
The fan of Manchester United, Griffiths continued revealing information about the bet as she said: “It was a weird feeling. I wanted United to win, but I wanted MK Dons to score again so I could win the money, I couldn’t watch the last 10 minutes and had to tell my friends to let me know what happened.”
It was a great day for the Manchester United supporter that betted $4 for their opponents to win as she went on winning $2,000.
