Manchester United’s home game against Liverpool has been postponed after about 200 fans broke into their Old Trafford stadium to protest against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club.

The game was set to kick off at 4:30 pm but was first delayed on safety grounds before been postponed.

United fans got on to the pitch to protest and, after they were removed, some got back on to it later on.

Fans gathered outside the ground and scores of green and gold flares – the colours of United’s first shirts when they were Newton Heath, and of the original anti-Glazer protests in 2010 – were set off at 14:00.
The protests follow United’s decision, along with five fellow Premier League clubs, to join the European Super League last month before they all pulled out.

Referee Michael Oliver and former United captain Gary Neville were among those whose vehicles were surrounded as they entered the stadium.

There was no trouble and both were allowed through amid much anti-Glazer chanting.

Supporters are currently not allowed into grounds because of the coronavirus pandemic.
