Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has defended Manchester United fans for protesting against the club’s leadership on Sunday.
United was slated to take The Reds on Sunday evening but the game had to be postponed after the home fans invaded the team hotel before proceeding to Old Trafford to express their displeasure.
“Do we want to see supporters storming stadiums left, right, and center and getting games called off? No, we don’t! But, I’m not someone who will sit here and criticize Manchester United fans for today because I’m Liverpool,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“I think two weeks ago, supporters came together through the Super League for the first time. I’ve just been looking on my phone and I see the reaction of Liverpool supporters, but you go back a few weeks ago and Liverpool supporters were involved with a bus (window being smashed) and got plenty of criticism. There will always be idiots who get involved.
“This thing that Manchester United fans have done today, I think it’s actually a good thing, in terms of protesting about what you are not happy about is going on at the club. There will always be one or two people who take it too far.”
