Manchester United have warned any fans who engaged in “criminal activity” during Sunday’s protests will be punished by both the police and the club.

Thousands of United fans gathered outside the team hotel and around Old Trafford to demonstrate against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club.

Hundreds stormed the stadium itself and ran on to the pitch, while clashes with police left two officers injured.

The protest caused United’s Premier League fixture with Liverpool – due to kick-off two hours after fans ran on to the pitch – to be postponed, and the clubs are in talks with the league about finding a new date for the game.

In a statement on Monday, United rejected reports that fans had simply walked into the stadium and accused those protestors of “breaking through barriers and security” and “forcing access” to the stands.

The club also said: “A protestor smashed the door of a disability access lift, enabling a group to enter the stand.” They added: “The majority of our fans have and will condemn criminal among, along with any violence towards club staff, police or other fans, and these now become a police matter.

The club has no desire to see peaceful protestors punished, but will work with the police to identify those involved in criminal activity, and will also issue its own sanctions to any season ticket holder or member identified, per the published sanctions policy.”
