Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola pleads with Liverpool to prevent a repeat of the
attack on the Manchester City bus by Reds fans in 2018 ahead of Anfield trip…
insisting ‘you cannot imagine how bad it was’
Bottles, cans, and flares were thrown at the City players in a frightening ordeal
that Pep Guardiola admitted: ‘You can not imagine how bad it was.’
City’s two visits to Anfield in front of supporters since then have passed off without
incident though Real Madrid had a window of their coach smashed by Liverpool fans
‘Hopefully, I wish it would never happen again. Hopefully, they have sorted it out,’
said Guardiola about his own experience.
‘I am pretty sure the Liverpool police and people understood the situation and I hope
it never happens again.’
Liverpool are planning for Sunday’s game to be a celebration of their record
goalscorer Roger Hunt who died last week at the age of 83.
A special commemorative program has been issued with manager Jurgen Klopp
and captain Jordan Henderson paying tribute to the World Cup-winning striker and a
giant mosaic for ‘Sir Roger’ is due to be unveiled in The Kop.
