“We stand with LFC” – Man United, Everton among clubs to pay respects on Hillsborough anniversary

Rivalries were put aside as football clubs including Man United and Everton marked the 33rd anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

97 innocent lives were lost on this day in 1989, in the worst sporting disaster in British history – with the subsequent cover-up and lies from the government, police, football authorities and media causing further hurt for the families and survivors.

Football clubs such Everton, Man United, Man City and Tottenham marked the anniversary with posts on social media.

“We stand with LFC in remembering the 97 victims of the Hillsborough disaster, 33 years on from that fateful day,” wrote Man United. “They will never be forgotten.”

“We were – and remain – a city united in its grief,” noted Everton.

Liverpool’s upcoming Champions League opponents, Villarreal were also among those marking the anniversary.
