Manchester United fans protested on the pitch at Old Trafford resulting in the game not going ahead

Manchester United’s home game with Liverpool has been postponed following fan protests on the Old Trafford pitch this afternoon.

Manchester United supporters have been dispersed by police from outside Old Trafford after some broke into the stadium.

There was also a demonstration at the team's hotel as fans protested the Glazer’s ownership in the midst of the club’s failed attempts to join the European Super league.

A statement on manutd.com 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.
