The clash between two English Premier League title rivals, Manchester United and Liverpool was put off on Sunday due to a massive demonstration by fans of the Red Devils, Naija News reports.
To calm anxiety on the unforeseen development, the Premier League management hours later released a statement that explained why the match was called off.
It was revealed in the statement that the game was postponed after United supporters invaded the Old Trafford pitch to stage a demonstration against the club owners, the Glazer family. EPL explained in the statement that a new date and time for the match will be communicated in due course.
The statement reads: “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 added: “The rearrangement of the fixture will be communicated in due course.”
Meanwhile, Portuguese professional coach and former manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho has landed a new job, Naija News reports.
