Liverpool condemn ‘vile chants’ heard from Manchester City fan section

Liverpool has condemned “horrendous chants in relation to football stadium tragedies” during Sunday’s 1-0 Anfield wins against Manchester Citywho issued a statement saying the chants came from the section housing the away team’s supporters.

Chants of “killers” and “always the victims, it’s never your fault,” were sung during the first half of the game. 97 Liverpool supporters died as a result of the Hillsborough disaster in 1989; 39 Juventus Supporters were killed during stadium riots ahead of the 1985 European Cup final against Liverpool at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels.

Rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United has previously resulted in chants about the Hillsborough disaster and the 1958 Munich air disaster being issued by rival fans. The two clubs have since worked closely together to stamp out such chanting.

However, chants of Hillsborough and Heysel were clearly audible during Sunday’s game against City and Liverpool have said they will work with the Premier League champions to stamp out future incidents.

Liverpool have said that graffiti “associated with the disasters” was also found to have been plastered in the away section after the match.

“We are deeply disappointed to hear vile chants relating to football stadium tragedies from the away section during today’s game at Anfield,” the statement said.

– The pitch in the away section was also vandalized with graffiti of a similar nature.

“We know the impact such behavior has on the families, survivors and all those associated with such disasters.

“We are cooperating with the relevant authorities and we will also work with Manchester City to do our utmost to ensure that these chants are eradicated from football altogether.”
