Two police officers were also injured. One of them was seriously injured in the Manchester riots on Sunday. The case was investigated. Due to this incident, the Manchester United-Liverpool match had to be postponed in the English Football League.
The Manchester captain said on Monday that a police officer who needed an emergency in a hospital was hit by a bottle of alcohol, causing a severe fracture to his face. He added that after the incident, a formal investigation began.
Deputy Captain Russ Jackson emphasized that the case made it clear to many that the protesters’ intentions against everyone at Manchester United were not clearly peaceful. He emphasized that the police had been ordered to prevent more serious atrocities, but the Druckers attacked them in some places, throwing away bottles and iron fences as a warning to law enforcement officers.
Before the start of the Manchester United-Liverpool League match, fans of the home team began to gather at Old Trafford at noon and pulled out banners and ignited the Greek fire to protest against Glaser, the club owner who has been running the club since 2005. family. For a long time, the Druckers have been dissatisfied with American car owners, and the recently closed European Super League (MU) also joined them, just adding fuel to the fire.
An hour before the scheduled 5:30 pm, hundreds of fans entered the field through a tunnel-some metal cordon was thrown away-and torches were lit. In the face of the attack, the security guards were helpless, but some hawkers voluntarily left the stadium after about twenty minutes. Before the game, several fans performed at the Lowry Hotel, home of the home team. The host initially reported that the game was about to start, but then MU announced shortly before 7pm that it would miss the meeting for safety reasons.
The police said that more than a thousand fans in the stadium and about two hundred fans in the Lowry Hotel participated in the protest. Like MU, Russ Jackson condemned the “reckless and dangerous” behavior of the Druckers. He emphasized in a statement that the people’s right to freedom of speech and peaceful demonstrations has been fully recognized, but he regrets that certain printers, directors and police officers are in danger because of this.
The Premier League explained that it understood the feelings of angry fans, but condemned all violence and aggression in this regard. In particular, restrictions are violated in epidemic situations and remain effective.
However, MU supporters also said that they not only protested against the Glazer family through actions, but also wanted to put pressure on the British government. They want to ensure that in the future no investor can obtain a majority stake in a professional football club.
