Protest at Old Trafford: identity of those involved to be revealed


Manchester United have denied reports that club staff let fans into Old Trafford during Sunday’s protest, while the club worked with police “to identify those involved in criminal activity”.

United’s game against Liverpool has been postponed after protests outside the team’s hotel and then inside the stadium.

The club said fans gained access to Old Trafford pitch through “criminal damage” rather than help from Man United staff, according to the club.

Fans are currently not allowed into Old Trafford due to the coronavirus pandemic, but a number of people have been given access to the ground and then to the pitch.

The Glazers were credited with key roles in attempts to launch an unpopular European Super League last month.
