Manchester City say they are “extremely disappointed” with a section of their fans that made noise during a minute’s silence ahead of their FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
The silence was to mark 33 years since the Hillsborough disaster, which claimed the lives of 97 Liverpool supporters.
Although it appeared to be a small number of City fans making noise, it was clearly audible throughout the stadium and led to understandably angry boos from the Liverpool fans.
A statement released by City during the game read: “Manchester City are extremely disappointed with the actions of some City supporters during the minute’s silence before today’s game.
“The club sincerely apologises to all those connected with Liverpool Football Club.”
