Greater Manchester Police has confirmed a 28-year-old man has been arrested following Sunday’s protest by Manchester United fans at Old Trafford.

Thousands of Red Devils supporters demonstrated against the club’s owners, the Glazer family, outside of their home ground ahead of the Liverpool clash, which ended up being postponed.

A Greater Manchester Police statement read: “Six police officer injuries have been reported so far with one officer receiving a fractured eye socket, requiring medical treatment, and another sustained a wound to his face, following bottles and cans being thrown from the crowd.

“We remain committed to dialogue and engagement with our fans through the Fans Forum and other appropriate channels.” The Football Association, which is investigating the incidents at Old Trafford, took a dim view of fans’ behaviour.

A section of supporters raided the Old Trafford pitch as two police officers were left with serious injuries with one being attacked by a broken bottle, which led to a significant slash wound to his face .

“This could be an important moment to change football for the better.

An earlier United statement read: “Our fans are passionate about Manchester United, and we completely acknowledge the right to free expression and peaceful protest.
