Manchester United’s game against Liverpool has been postponed after hundreds of angry fans stormed locked-down Old Trafford in a security breach on Sunday evening, May 2.
A planned protest by United’s fans against the billionaire owners of Manchester United, the Glazers, led to a stand-off with police at the entrance to the stadium just hours before the game.
Fans angry with the way the club has been run and the club’s involvement in the failed European Super League, chanted and lit flares next to the team bus as it waited for the squad outside the club’s hotel while a large demonstration outside Old Trafford led to hundreds rushing onto the pitch.
Footage also showed fans chanting towards the Sky Sports television studio and cameras set up in the main stand of the stadium, while protestors were also seen carrying the United corner flags.
Amid the chaos, the match has been postponed, and no new date for the clash has been confirmed as at press time.
