Premier League releases statement on cancelled Manchester United vs Liverpool fixture… The Premier League has released a statement after Sunday’s fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool was called off.
The game was postponed after United supporters invaded the Old Trafford pitch, protesting against the owners, the Glazer family.
In a statement, the Premier League has said the “rearrangement of the fixture will be communicated in due course”.
“We understand and respect the strength of feeling but condemn all acts of violence, criminal damage and trespass, especially given the associated COVID-19 breaches.
“Fans have many channels by which to make their views known, but the actions of a minority seen today have no justification,” it read in part.
It added that “the rearrangement of the fixture will be communicated in due course.”
