Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp was attacked this Saturday and “sustained damage” by “an object thrown at the bus” of his team on his “return journey” after the game against Manchester City at the Etihad stadium, as explained by the latter club in a statement, also regretting their fans’ “inappropriate” chants during the match, with a 4–1 local win.
“Manchester City have learned that the Liverpool manager has been injured on his way back from today’s game. We understand that an object has been thrown at the coach in a residential area. Incidents like this are totally unacceptable and we strongly condemn the actions of the person(s) responsible,” denounced the Manchester entity on its website.
City said it will “fully support Manchester Regional Police’s investigation” into the incident in any way possible.
Similarly, the ‘citizen’ club is “disappointed” with the “inappropriate chants” from several local fans during the game between the two teams in Manchester.
“We regret any offense these chants have caused and will continue to work with fan groups and staff from both clubs to eliminate hate speech from this match,” he said.
