- Updated: April 15, 2013
After a weekend of fan violence across English football, this was a very classy move from Manchester United.
On their website, Manchester United announced this morning: “Today, Manchester United stands with our great neighbours, Liverpool, to remember the tragic loss of 96 football fans who went to watch their team and never came back.
The events that occurred at Hillsborough 24 years ago, on 15 April 1989, resulted in Britain’s worst ever stadium disaster.
The thoughts and prayers of everybody at Manchester United today are with Liverpool Football Club and the families and friends of those who lost their lives.”
