Liverpool’s impending clash with Manchester United has been placed in serious doubt, with it being reported that the referee has been turned away following the staging of protests at Old Trafford.
This comes from Sky News, who suggest that it may be a struggle to get the demonstrators under control within the next 90 minutes – an hour before the tie is supposed to start, at the time of writing.

The protest actions at the club’s ground follow the owners’, the Glazers, attempt to introduce the side to a breakaway European Super League, a move that was reversed following a severe backlash from supporters of the Premier League big six.

Though there is a strong possibility that the actions of the Red Devils’ supporters involved in the demonstrations may very well result in the fixture being delayed or, potentially, called off altogether, we can certainly understand the level of anger felt by fans against the ownership.
If protests such as this can lead to change in the sport and, most importantly, the supporters being given a stronger say in the decision-making of the club, then a delayed game is certainly a cost worth bearing.

Hey media!! Stop justifying and sympathizing with these behavior! Enough is enough! What do the damn fans still want?? The league is dead, apologies issued. What else is there now? Cancel games? More turmoil?
Btw, I sure hope that if this game doesn’t go through ManU is penalized with losing the game! Period. If they can’t control their crowd and in facts almost facilitated this by having no security whatsoever there is no debate. 0-3 result, move on. Nothing else to debate.
What is the meaning of this please i need an answer
