Manchester United’s home match against Liverpool was postponed after Red Devils fans earlier entered Old Trafford in an anti-Glazer protest. Man United Vs Liverpool Postponed.
United supporters entered the Old Trafford pitch as part of protests against the club’s owners after earlier gathering outside the team’s hotel ahead of Sunday’s scheduled visit of Liverpool.
The club’s involvement in the breakaway European Super League, which swiftly collapsed, has reignited lingering resentment of the ownership at Old Trafford.
The Glazers, who acquired the club through a leveraged buyout in 2005, have long been unpopular but have become the subject of increased criticism in recent weeks.
Fans surrounded The Lowry Hotel – where United stay before home matches – on Sunday, letting off red smoke bombs and leading anti-Glazer chants.
The demonstration did not end there, however, with some supporters gaining access to the stadium and then the pitch after first protesting outside the ground, with flares hurled towards the directors’ box and press area. Spectators are not currently allowed inside Premier League venues due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Premier League initially announced kick-off had been delayed, with the intention seemingly to proceed with the match later on Sunday as the two teams confirming starting XIs. Man United Vs Liverpool Postponed.
But a little over an hour after the initial kick-off time of 16:30 BST, it was confirmed the game is now to be played at a later date.
