Liverpool, Man U match postponed after fans invade pitch
Match between Manchester United and Liverpool set to take place on Sunday had to be postponed.
This is after a section of Manchester United players stormed the pitch protesting against the Glazer ownership of the club.
Rowdy scenes were witnessed at the Old Trafford pitch moments before the Premier League Fixture against Liverpool was set to begin.
“We want Glazers Out, we want Glazer Out,” chants could be heard.
Reports indicate that some fans even attempted to get into the dressing room.
Some protestors pushed down barriers to force their way into the ground and made their way onto the pitch.
Manchester United fans have been opposed to the Glazer ownership since the American family bought the club in 2005.
They bought the club through a leveraged buyout for around £790 million ($1.1 billion).
The money for the buyout was funded by debt that they would pay off from the club’s future profits.
Since then the club have already paid out over £1 billion (€1.4bn) in bank fees and dividends to the owners.
