The classic Manchester United vs Liverpool, valid for the 34th round of the Premier League and which would be played yesterday, Sunday (2) at Old Trafford, has been postponed. All because hours before the opening whistle, about a thousand fans of the Red Devils made a protest against the Glazer family, owner of the club, which ended in an invasion of the stadium.
According to ESPN Brasil, one of the main reasons that forced the postponement of the match was that one of the players’ access to the stadium was damaged by the invaders. There is still no new date for the match to take place. United and Liverpool issued statements announcing the postponement.
“Our game against Liverpool was postponed due to security concerns after today’s protests. Now talks with the Premier League will take place to set a new date for the game”, says part of the Red Devils note. “Liverpool totally agreed with the decision to postpone today’s game as a result of events at Old Trafford and surrounding areas”, says an excerpt from the document issued by Liverpool.
