Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Liverpool was called off  Sunday following a massive fans protest inside Old Trafford pitch before the scheduled 4.30 pm kick-off.

Man United supporters, who are demanding that owners- the Glazers family leave the club, held up placards and lit up flares while chanting anti-Glazers songs.

The club issued a statement expressing regret over the disruption to the team and actions which put other fans, staff, and the police in danger.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also promised to assist the police in any subsequent investigations.

The statement read: “Following discussion between the Police, The Premier League, Trafford Council and the clubs, our match against Liverpool has been postponed due to safety and security considerations around the protest today. Discussions will now take place with the Premier League on a revised date for the fixture.
