Liverpool condemn their own supporters after Man City bus attacked
Liverpool have released a statement condemning their own supporters after the Manchester City bus was damaged on it’s approach to Anfield.
The two sides are set to go head to head in the Champions League this evening as they bid for a place in the semi-finals.
Manchester City come into the game in fine form but Liverpool are the only side to beat them in the Premier League this season.
The sides played out a dramatic game at the beginning of 2018 when Liverpool came out 4-3 victors.
Though, there is a lot more riding on this game with Champions League progression key for both sides this season.
Now, there has been trouble ahead of the game with Liverpool fans attacking the Cityzens bus.
Projectiles were thrown at the bus as it arrived on Anfield road, with bottles smashing off the transport and more.
Reports also stated that the bus was damaged beyond repair and the side will look for alternative travel to get back to Manchester.
Liverpool have now released a statement on the issue:
The club condemns in the strongest possible terms the scenes which preceded our Champions League quarter-final, which resulted in damage being inflicted on the Manchester City team bus during their arrival at Anfield.
We apologise unreservedly to Pep Guardiola, his players, staff and officials caught up in the incident.
The behaviour of a number of individuals was completely unacceptable and the club will cooperate fully with the authorities to identify those responsible.
The priority now is to establish the facts and offer Manchester City whatever support is necessary.
