Man U fans force unprecedented PL postponement over protests

·1 min read

MANCHESTER, England — The Premier League was forced to abandon one of the biggest matches of the season after an invasion of Old Trafford by Manchester United fans ahead of the game against Liverpool. It's an unprecedented moment for the world’s richest soccer competition. Some fans made it inside the stadium onto the field. Ugly scenes erupted outside the stadium as police clashed with supporters who are enraged by 16 years of lack of engagement by the Glazers which peaked with their decision to take United into a breakaway European Super League. That collapsed two weeks ago inside 48 hours.
