A brick was thrown at the Liverpool team bus on the way home after the 4-1 defeat at Manchester City. According to the police, no one was injured.
The stone may have been thrown by a Manchester City supporter. Greater Manchester Police have “now launched an investigation to identify and locate the perpetrators.”
The Skyblues themselves commented on the incident: “We have learned that an object was thrown at the bus in a residential area. Incidents of this nature are completely unacceptable and we strongly condemn the actions of the person(s) responsible.”
The defending champions also expressed regret that disparaging chants were sung at the stadium against the Reds. It was about the Hillsborough disaster of 1989, in which 97 Liverpool fans were killed.
The Reds had previously lost 4-1 to Pep Guardiola’s side after a 1-0 lead by Mohamed Salah. In the absence of Erling Haaland, City goals were scored by his substitute Julian Alvarez, Kevin de Bruyne, Ilkay Gündogan and Jack Grealish.
After that, LFC coach Jürgen Klopp was upset about his team’s performance: “You can’t say anything positive about the game. You can only use it to show what mustn’t happen.”
