Banner was unveiled outside the Thailand stadium where Liverpool completed their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia
Monday 29 July 2013
Liverpool fans have responded to condemn so-called fans in Thailand who displayed a banner mocking the Munich Air Disaster.
During the club’s 3-0 pre-season victory over Thailand on Sunday, an unknown group of locals in Liverpool shirts unveiled a banner outside the Rajamangala National Stadium that read: “Alex Ferguson Out Working Go To The Hell (Munich, 58).”
Eight Manchester United players and three members of staff lost their lives in the plane crash in 1958, and despite the bitter rivalry between the two club’s both sets of fans have made their efforts to pay their respects to the victims of both the Munich and Hillsborough disaster in 1989 over the years.
Liverpool fans have already taken to Twitter to vent their anger at the images, labelling those pictured as “fake” and a “disgrace”.
Darren Belfast said: “Imposters wearing Liverpool fc shirts in Thailand mocking those ManUtd players and staff who died in Munich. You disgrace the Club.#Shameful.”
Another Tweet, from a Liverpool fans' account called LFC flags & Banners said: “Absolutely shocking & embarrassing banner by some fake so called Liverpool fans. Probably Never even been to the UK!”
Liverpool finished their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia with the victory, and they now head back to the United Kingdom to face further friendly’s with Olympiacos, Valerenga and Celtic.
