“Completely unacceptable” – Manchester United respond to offensive chants at Anfield

Manchester United have issued a statement labelling chants at Anfield last night “completely unacceptable”.

Offensive chants were heard from both sections of the crowd at Anfield, however, a video surfaced online showing a number of United fans singing: ‘The Sun was right, you’re murderers’.

The stadium did unite to show support for Cristiano Ronaldo on the 7-minute mark after the Manchester United star’s newborn son passed away.

In a statement, United promised to speak to fan groups about ‘educating’ fans, in a bid to stop distasteful chants about the dead at football matches.

“Manchester United stands in solidarity with Liverpool FC and its fans in remembering the Hillsborough disaster,” a United spokesperson said, as per Simon Stone. “Offensive chants about the tragedy are unacceptable and we will work with our supporters’ groups to educate fans on the issue.”
