Manchester United ejects a fan from home end at Old Trafford during Sunday’s clash with Liverpool over alleged racial abuse.
United is still carrying out investigations over the racial abuse incidence.
A spokesman from the club has said, “We are aware of an incident at yesterday’s game where an individual in the home section has allegedly engaged in racial abuse.”
“The individual was identified and immediately ejected from the stadium. We are currently investigating the matter as a priority.”
“Racism and all forms of discrimination are completely unacceptable and do not reflect the values of our club.”
It is understood the situation could lead to an indefinite ban.
Similarly, Liverpool’s spokesperson also made a comment over the same. He said, “Liverpool Football Club takes all allegations of this manner extremely seriously. The club will support the strongest possible action being taken against anyone found to be responsible.”
“At this stage, it would be inappropriate to comment further on the alleged incident itself. The best thing is to welcome the swiftness with which Manchester United having launched an investigation and support their stance that racism and discrimination must be treated with zero tolerance.”
This is one of a number of incidents of alleged racist abuse that happened over the weekend. Similar incidence was witnessed in the FA Cup tie between Haringey Borough and Yeovil Town which was abandoned after players walked off the pitch following abuse.
