Today marks the 26th anniversary of the tragic Hillsborough disaster that claimed the lives of 96 football fans who travelled to the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at the Hillsborough Stadium.
We, ourselves, as an independent voice of Manchester United shared respect to those that died during the disaster.
Nobody deserves to go to football and not return. A true tragedy took place 26 years ago, costing the lives of 96 people.
