Atmosphere at OLD TRAFFORD

 

Manchester United and Liverpool have been charged by UEFA over crowd trouble that flared at Old Trafford on a night which saw five arrests during and after their Europa League last-16 clash.

Fights broke out towards the end of Liverpool’s 3-1 aggregate victory when a group of visiting fans sitting in a section of the East Stand occupied by United supporters began celebrating and unfurled a Liverpool flag.

That sparked ugly scenes as a number of United fans threw punches at their rivals at the very bottom of the second tier. Stewards tried to intervene but the scrap continued for around five minutes, with two Liverpool supporters later arrested on suspicion of affray. They remain in custody.

UEFA are now set to act, with United facing three disciplinary charges, while Liverpool face five, in a case that will be dealt with by the European football governing body’s control, ethics and disciplinary panel on May 19. source: www.dailymail.co.uk
