The Manchester United and Liverpool game scheduled for this weekend has been postponed until both teams and the Premier League have ascertained that the match can take place safely. The fan protests were directed at the Glazer family and their recent terrible decisions relating to the Super League.

Liverpool put out a full statement earlier today:

Liverpool Football Club was in full agreement with the decision to postpone today’s fixture as a result of ongoing events at Old Trafford and the surrounding area.

It is our position that public safety must be the number one factor in any such decision, with the ability to provide a secure environment for the participants, staff and officials being a particular priority.

It was clearly not possible for this to be guaranteed today due to a situation which escalated rapidly.

We will continue to have dialogue with Manchester United, the Premier League and the local authorities to find a suitable date to reschedule.

As soon as we have this information we will update our supporters accordingly.

The teams (Liverpool included) and ownership have to reckon with their decisions to take part in the absolute nonsense that was the European Super League, and the sooner they do so, the better for everyone.

As of Sunday evening, there’s no decision yet on when the game will be played.
