Rotterdam, Sep 16: An unnamed Manchester United player was trapped in Rotterdam after United's 0-1 loss to Dutch side Feyenoord in a Europa League match as he struggled to provide his urine sample for doping tests.

The footballer was unable to give his urine sample on time and was late for his flight back to Manchester until the local police intervened to give him a lift on his way to the airport.
