Manchester United condemn Hillsborough chants at Anfield

Manchester United have released a statement condemning the singing of songs about the Hillsborough tragedy during the 2-0 Europa League defeat away at Liverpool.

United fans were heard chanting about the 1989 disaster, in which 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives, and the club have moved swiftly to distance itself from the individuals concerned.

"It has always been the position of Manchester United that chants of this nature, which refer to historical tragedies, have no place in the game and do not reflect the values the Club holds," a statement read. "We are in discussion with our fans' groups to seek their support in preventing this type of behaviour in the future."

United host Liverpool in the second leg of the tie on Thursday, with West Ham visiting Old Trafford in the FA Cup quarterfinals this Sunday.
