Just a few weeks ago, creation of a European soccer Super League was met with immediate backlash from players, fans and even the government.
Days after the Super League was announced a possibility, it dissipated. Following outrage from fans and local government, the Super League disbanded as quickly as it started.
Majors soccer clubs like Chelsea and Manchester City pulled out of the league following outrage from fans. That sparked similar clubs to do the same thing, crushing the Super League before it even started.
One of the clubs scheduled to be in the Super League was Manchester United. While Man U pulled out of the Super League, fans are still irate with the Glazer family for attempting to take the club out of the English Premier League.
Before a match against Liverpool on Sunday, hundreds of fans flocked to Old Trafford to protest the Glazers. The match was forced to be postponed after fans breached security and rushed the pitch.
Here’s some of the scenes from the protest.

The crowds have been cleared from the pitch, but the game between Manchester United and Liverpool remains postponed. Thousands of fans remain outside the stadium and clashes with police have happened.
Fans are clearly not over the potential formation of the Super League.
