Man City sends apologies to Liverpool over fans' behavior at Wembley

Manchester City have issued a public apology to rivals Liverpool, over the behavior of a small section of the club’s fan base at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Sky Blues and the Reds are currently playing for the second time in a week, on this occasion in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Before kick-off in the English capital, it was the events taking place in the stands that grabbed the headlines.

This came at a time when a group of City supporters present at the confrontation chose to chant and sing amid a minute of silence in honor of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster:

In contrast, as noted above, the Sky Blues, as a club, have not moved since then to not only clear their disappointment with the group of fans concerned, but also to issue a public apology to all associated with Liverpool:

By focusing attention once again on the same events at Wembley, Liverpool are of course in a position to book a place in the FA Cup Final, in the process keeping hopes of an unprecedented quartet alive.

This comes due to a lightning display in the first half, during which the first goal of Ibrahim Konate was added early through a brace by Sadio Mane, which led to Jurgen Klopp’s forces advancing 3-1 within ten minutes of the end of the match.
