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.
