Man City send apology to Liverpool over fan behaviour at Wembley


 

Manchester City have issued a public apology to rivals Liverpool, owing to the behaviour of a small section of the club's fanbase at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Sky Blues and Reds are of course currently locked in action for the 2nd time in the space of a week, on this occasion in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Turning attentions back towards the action itself at Wembley, it is of course Liverpool who are currently in position to book a spot in the FA Cup's showpiece, in the process keeping hopes of an unprecedented quadruple alive.
