Last Sunday was supposed to see the Red Devils take on fierce rivals Liverpool in the Premier League.

However, despite being the biggest club match in England, the game was postponed following several tense protests breaking out, both outside of Old Trafford and the player’s hotel, The Lowry.

Following the news that last weekend’s match has been rescheduled to 13 May, Liverpool manager Klopp has weighed in on the recent scenes.

Speaking in a recent press conference, the German said: “Was I surprised these kind of things happened? No.

“I’m an absolute believer in democracy – it means I am happy that people want to express their opinion, that’s completely fine.

“Situations like this do not happen too often when people do not get heard.

“But I said a few weeks ago when the protests were starting that we also have to be careful that nobody gets hurt – I said we need to be careful and calm down, to ask for the right things.

“I don’t know exactly what happened, but I heard some policemen got injured and this kind of thing should not happen.

“Doors should not be broken down – to express your opinion is completely fine as long as it is peaceful and as far as I know it wasn’t completely peaceful.”
