Manchester United have avoided UEFA sanction for supporters’ chants about the Hillsborough disaster at Liverpool.
Last week was the first ever European meeting of the north-west giants – the first leg of a last-16 Europa League tie which Jurgen Klopp’s men won 2-0 at Anfield.
The match was somewhat overshadowed by unsavoury chants from the away end, with sections of the travelling support heard singing about the Hillsborough disaster on several occasions.
However, a UEFA spokesperson has confirmed United will not be punished for the incident.
The chanting was not mentioned in the match officials’ reports, additional reports included, so no disciplinary proceedings have been opened as a result.
