Police in England have launched an investigation after an officer was left needing emergency hospital treatment following disturbances which led to the postponement of Manchester United's Premier League clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Fans broke into the stadium and invaded the pitch in protest at club owners the Glazer family, while outside the ground bottles and barriers were thrown at police officers and horses.



A club statement read: "Our fans are passionate about Manchester United, and we completely acknowledge the right to free expression and peaceful protest.



Manchester United Supporters Trust wants the Government to act to prevent single private shareholders holding majority ownerships in football clubs.



Two officers were injured, with one "attacked with a bottle and sustaining a significant slash wound to his face, requiring emergency hospital treatment", Greater Manchester Police said.

Andy Burnham, mayor of Greater Manchester, said on Twitter: "It is important to make clear that the majority of supporters made their protest peacefully today.

Liverpool, another founding member of the Super League, said they were in "full agreement" with the postponement.
