Old Trafford is loud tonight and pretty much all of that noise is coming from Manchester United.
So much noise that the United faithful have requested a song or two from the FK Astana fans…
As picked up on by Manchester Evening News reporter Samuel Luckhurst, the United fans have started singing “Borat, give us a song,” towards the away end.
Astana are the champions of the Kazakhstani league and 14-years ago the hilarious satire film Boart: Cuktual Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan was in cinemas.
United fans to Astana fans: ‘Borat, give us a song.’ #mufc

Baron Cohen, who plays Borat, acts bigoted in order to expose the bigotry in others.
It’s all a bit of fun but time will tell if the Astana fans respond.
