Manchester United vs Liverpool Live Match postponed after fans storm Old Trafford pitch on Sunday in angry protest.
Sunday’s Premier League fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool has been postponed after fan protests blocked the arrival of the buses and as around 200 fans broke into Old Trafford and took to the pitch.
News has it that furious Manchester United fans stormed the Old Trafford pitch ahead of today’s game against Liverpool in protest at the Glazers’ ownership of the club, with the match protest as a result.
Hundreds of supporters invaded the stadium ahead of the behind-closed-doors Premier League contest to express their anger following plans backed by the Glazer family to join a proposed European Super League, which collapsed soon after.
The Police, the Premier League, Trafford Council and the two clubs agreed that the game wouldn’t be able to go ahead.
A statement from the Premier League said:
Following the security breach at Old Trafford, the Manchester United vs. Liverpool game has been postponed.
This is a collective decision from the police, both clubs, the Premier League and local authorities.
The security and safety of everyone at Old Trafford remain of paramount importance. We understand and respect the strength of feeling but condemn all acts of violence, criminal damage and trespass, especially given the associated COVID-19 breaches.
Fans have many channels by which to make their views known, but the actions of a minority seen today have no justification.
We sympathize with the police and stewards who had to deal with a dangerous situation that should have no place in football.
The rearrangement of the fixture will be communicated in due course.
