One of the biggest Premier League fixture, Man Utd Vs Liverpool was postponed due to anti-Glazers protests by fans at the Old Trafford. The postponed match will now be played on 13th of May. The protests were majorly due to 2 main reasons.
The Glazers were one of the main parties in drafting the European Super League which they later backed out from and apologized to the fans for the same. Fans were against the very idea of it. As per them it would destroy the heritage of the club and would give a few teams in Europe an unfair advantage.
Secondly, the fans believe that United’s owner are more interested in making profit than making the club great again. They want that the club should be made public and fans should have the opportunity to buy shares in the club and have a say in the decisions.
Police clashes took place outside the stadium and 6 policemen were injured. Stadium was also damaged in these protests The protesters targeted the Lowry Hotel as well , where the United players were staying, and blocked the team from making it to the stadium. The protests turned violent as flares, bottles and barriers were thrown at police and six officers were injured.
