Man Utd sponsors AIG keep low profile in Rome

Manchester United's shirt sponsors AIG kept a low-profile in Rome yesterday.

The Daily Mail says United's discredited shirt sponsors AIG, who suffered the biggest loss in corporate history in 2008, were so keen not to be seen partying in Rome when they are 80 per cent owned by the Federal Reserve, they didn't even send the company's club liaison manager with the football club to Italy.

And AIG have also cancelled their Old Trafford club date on June 1 when sponsors are allowed to use the pitch.

Instead they have handed over use to children's charity UNICEF, whose name is on the Barcelona shirts for free compared to the £56m AIG have paid United.
