Manchester United – Liverpool cancelled to angry fans’ protests
The league game between Manchester United and Liverpool has been cancelled tonight due to protests from angry fans of the home team. For security reasons, the authorities considered it inappropriate to allow the game to continue behind closed doors. A new date for the top duel has not yet been announced.
About two hundred Manchester United supporters entered Old Trafford today in the run-up to the home game against Liverpool’s Old Trafford stadium in protest against owner Joel Glazer. They walked in the field for some time before being led away. After that, a group managed to return to the grass.
The game should have started at 5:30 PM. More than an hour later, the match was cancelled. According to Sky Sports, both teams stayed in their hotels at that time, where angry supporters also carried out the necessary actions.
The fans of ManUnited have long been eager for the departure of the American Glazer, who has never been very popular with the following. After last month’s failed plans to establish a Super League, anger has grown. The American Glazer family bought Manchester United in 2005 for £ 790 million. Although the club has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2012, the Glazers retained a majority stake.
