Man United vs Liverpool postponed after fans storm Old Trafford pitch

Furious Manchester United fans stormed the Old Trafford pitch ahead of today’s game against Liverpool in protest at the Glazers’ ownership of the club, with the match protest as a result.

Hundreds of supporters invaded the stadium ahead of the behind-closed-doors Premier League contest to express their anger following plans backed by the Glazer family to join a proposed European Super League, which collapsed soon after.

Outside the ground, large numbers of supporters were also protesting. A protest was planned outside the ground at 2pm, with fans congregating at least an hour before. A large number of fans ran back out of the stadium complex at around 2.20pm BST.
