Flares were hurled at Sky Sports pundits Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher when thousands of angry Manchester United supporters broke into the Old Trafford stadium. Footage posted online shows projectiles thrown towards the pundits in the Sky Sports studio. The shocking stadium invasion took place ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League clash against rivals Liverpool, which has now been delayed.
According to Sky Sports, the teams have yet to even leave their team hotels.
Sky Sports presenter David Jones claimed Manchester United fans “threw missiles” at them after breaking into Old Trafford.
He said: “They don’t want it to go ahead at all.
“Literally, we witnessed the protest because somehow they managed to get themselves in hundreds onto the pitch here at Old Trafford to continue their demonstration, it seems against the Glazer family and their ownership of Manchester United.
“And then, as quickly as they appeared, threw a couple of missiles in our direction, they dispersed again.”
