This is the moment a suspected football hooligan is tackled to the ground by a police dog and officer in an Ancoats street before the FA Cup game on January 9th.
Video footage shows the man being chased by a dog who then jumps up at him in an attempt to bring him down.
Then seconds later a policeman rushes to grab the man, before pulling his legs out from under him as scuffles break out between the pair next to Cutting Room Square.
The officer appears to aim a punch at the man, who is clearly fighting back, before other members of the force rush over to help calm things down.
The incident happened on Saturday, January 9, before Manchester United’s game against Sheffield United in the FA Cup.
