Manchester United have condemned fans who chanted “unacceptable” songs about the Hillsborough tragedy at Anfield.
The club comfortably beat defending champions Liverpool, the spokesman said, adding that Manchester United would work to educate fans on the issue.
On April 15, 1989, 97 Liverpool fans died after being crushed in the English Cup semi-final match against Nottingham Forest at Hilborough Stadium.
This is one of the worst sports disasters in the UK, and an investigation later found that they had been killed illegally.
“Manchester United are in solidarity with Liverpool և its fans, remembering the memory of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster,” said the club’s spokesman.
“Insulting chants about the tragedy are completely unacceptable. We will work with our support groups to raise awareness of the issue.”
During the seventh minute. Fans of both teams gathered for a minute of applause in defense of Cristiano Ronaldo’s family, who made the announcement on Monday their newborn son had died.
Liverpool fans sang the anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone” while both groups of players wore armbands.
Goals from Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz secured a comfortable 4-0 victory for Liverpool.
Manchester United’s rivals Manchester City also apologized on Saturday when a small part of the fans broke a minute of silence dedicated to the 33rd anniversary of the catastrophe in the FA Cup semi-final match against Merseyside at Wembley.
