By Eoin Lyons Updated

Manchester United are currently on their preseason tour of the US. The Red Devils took on the San Jose Earthquakes yesterday, registering a 0-0 draw in Santa Clara, but the game will go down more for the actions of United defender Matteo Darmian, who inadvertently killed a pigeon during the friendly.
