Football Club Manchester United has ordered a couple who make their own  football stickers to stop selling their drawings of the team's ex-players. The couple started during the World Cup in 2014 under the name “Panini Cheapskates”. The couple says Manested United got in touch and made them stop selling their drawings.

 

A Manchester United spokesman states: “Permission to use Manchester United's intellectual property is only granted to official licensees, partners and sponsors of the club. "Because Panini Cheapskate's items featured the Manchester United word mark, they unfortunately infringed those intellectual property rights."

 

The couple has now changed the drawings, that no longer show the Machested United logo and the real name of the players.
