Manchester United have condemned chants about the Hillsborough disaster that were sung by a section of the away support at Anfield on Tuesday.
The offensive chants took place during Liverpool‘s 4-0 Premier League victory against Manchester United.
According to the Daily Mail, video footage has subsequently emerged showing a section of United supporters chanting offensive songs about the Hillsborough disaster.
Man United have now confirmed that they will educate fans about the disaster, which claimed 97 lives, with a club spokesperson stating: “Manchester United stands in solidarity with Liverpool FC and its fans in remembering the victims of the Hillsborough Disaster.
“Offensive chants about the tragedy are completely unacceptable and we will work with our supporters’ groups to educate fans on the issue.”
It was the second apology that Liverpool received in just a matter of days, with Manchester City apologising after fans chanted during the minute’s silence to mark the 33rd anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, when City faced Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend.
