Appearing briefly at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court, he was asked if he had any middle names, to 
which he replied: “Manchester United”.

No further details of the case were revealed and he did not enter pleas, but was told the case was not suitable to be heard at magistrates and must go to crown court.

He was bailed to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on January 20.
