A marquee English Premier League game was postponed on Sunday after hundreds of Manchester United fans, protesting against the club’s US owners, invaded the pitch at its Old Trafford stadium ahead of the match against Liverpool.”Following the security breach at Old Trafford, the Manchester United vs. Liverpool game has been postponed,” said the Premier League in statement.”This is a collective decision from the police, both clubs, the Premier League and local authorities,” added the statement.Many Manchester United supporters are unhappy over the club’s failed attempt to join the European Super League last month. The Glazer family, which also owns the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, runs the club.The Premier League said the decision to postpone the game was to ensure “the security and safety of everyone at Old Trafford.””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,” said the Premier League in its statement.”Fans have many channels by which to make their views known, but the actions of a minority seen today have no justification.”We sympathise with the police and stewards who had to deal with a dangerous situation that should have no place in football.”The rearrangement of the fixture will be communicated in due course.”Manchester United issued a statement acknowledging fans’ right to “free expression and peaceful protest.””However, we regret the disruption to the team and actions which put other fans, staff, and the police in danger. We thank the police for their support and will assist them in any subsequent investigation,” added the United statement.Greater Manchester Police did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
