Manchester United vs Liverpool in doubt after pitch invasion

MAnchester United supporters burst into the stadium and onto the pitch ahead of Sunday match against Liverpool as fans gathered outside Old Trafford to protest the property.

Long-standing anger against club owners, the Glazer family, has exploded after participating in the unsuccessful attempt to bring United into a European Super League.

Media trying to enter the club’s parking lot learned that the ground was locked. United supporters were expressing their anger over Glazer family-backed plans to join a European Super League proposal, which collapsed soon after.

The plans added to years of discontent and partisan protests following the controversial Glazers takeover in 2005.

Off the pitch, a large number of supporters were also protesting.

A protest was scheduled outside the ground at 2 p.m., with fans gathering at least an hour before.

Fans are currently unable to attend games due to the pandemic.
