Man City issues an apology to Liverpool
During a minute’s silence in honour of the 97 fans who were illegally slain at Hillsborough, Manchester City apologised to Liverpool Football Club and denounced their own fans for their behaviour.
On the 33rd anniversary of the catastrophe, a minute’s silence was observed before the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Man City, prior to kick-off, to honour the Reds supporters who died on April 15, 1989.
While fans at the Liverpool end of the stadium respected the silences admirably, fans in the Man City end began a pro-City chant, prompting Reds fans inside Wembley to begin booing when their pleas for quiet were disregarded.
City also issued an official statement apologizing to Liverpool following the event.
“Manchester City are extremely disappointed with the actions of some City supporters during the minute’s silence before today’s game,” they said. “The Club sincerely apologises to all those connected with Liverpool Football Club.”
