Manchester United’s game against Liverpool has been postponed after about 200 fans broke into Old Trafford to protest against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club.

 

The game was scheduled to kick-off at 16:30 BST on Sunday.

 

A club statement read: ‘Following discussion between the Police, The Premier League, Trafford Council and the clubs, our match against Liverpool has been postponed due to safety and security considerations around the protest today. Discussions will now take place with the Premier League on a revised date for the fixture.

 

‘Our fans are passionate about Manchester United, and we completely acknowledge the right to free expression and peaceful protest.

 

‘However, we regret the disruption to the team and actions which put other fans, staff, and the police in danger. We thank the police for their support and will assist them in any subsequent investigations.’
