Manchester United v Liverpool Postponed as fans invade Old Trafford pitch - (2021)
Sunday evening's Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool at the Old Trafford had to be postponed after nearly 200 fans broke into the ground protesting United's ownership by the Glazer family.
BBC Sport reported incidences of serious clashes with police near the entrance to the Munich tunnel, which runs behind the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand at Old Trafford.
The Greater Manchester Police [GMP] have revealed that two of its officers were injured trying to contain the protests with one of them sustaining a slash wound on the face after being attacked with a bottle.
There was no word as to the when the date of the match been shifted too. Manchester United needed a win to prevent Manchester City being crowned champions on Sunday.
The fans ire was directed towards the Glazers who they say have no affection for the 143-year-old institution they own.
What has angered the United watchers even more is that the family has taken around £200 million for themselves.
Liverpool, who were also involved in the aborted attempt to join the European Super League, said they were in “full agreement” to postpone the game.
“It is our position that public safety must be the number one factor in any such decision, with the ability to provide a secure environment for the participants, staff and officials being a particular priority,” said the Anfield club.
