Manchester United’s Premier League match against Liverpool has been postponed.
This followed the protest of over 200 fans who broke into United’s Old Trafford to protest against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club.
The fixture was scheduled to kick off at 16:30 BST on Sunday.
Premier League announced that “this is a collective decision from the police, both clubs, the Premier League and local authorities.”
“The security and safety of everyone at Old Trafford remain of paramount importance.
“We understand and respect the strength of feeling but condemn all acts of violence, criminal damage, and trespass, especially given the associated Covid-19 breaches.”
Police said two officers had been injured following the protests.
Premier League sympathised with the police and stewards who had to deal with a dangerous situation that should have no place in football.
This is the first time a Premier League match has been postponed because of fan protests.
United in a statement regretted the disruption and added that “discussions will now take place with the Premier League on a revised date for the fixture.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently second in the Premier League and a defeat to Liverpool on Sunday would have secured the third time victory of the title in four seasons for Manchester City.
