Manchester United goalkeeper, Nathan Bishop, has publicly apologized to Paul Mullin following their unfortunate collision during a pre-season match. The incident was severe enough to cause Mullin to receive on-pitch treatment and later be taken to the hospital for checks, where it was discovered that he suffered a punctured lung.

Despite the severity of the collision that left Mullin with a punctured lung, Nathan Bishop received only a yellow card for his reckless challenge during the pre-season match. Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson expressed his dissatisfaction in a post-match interview, insisting that Bishop should have been sent off for the incident. The Manchester United goalkeeper, who is 23 years old, became the target of the home fans wrath at the stadium.

They considered him public enemy No.1, booing him with every touch after the collision. The situation escalated to the point where even the substitution of Bishop with Radek Vitek for the second half did not spare the young replacement from the fans’ jeers, as some mistook him for Bishop. After the game, the goalkeeper issued a statement saying that the challenge was a bad decision. He also wished Mullin a quick recovery.
