Liverpool fans watching yesterday’s friendly against Thailand were pictured with this nasty (and nonsensical) banner.
The Thai Reds displayed a banner reading: “Alex Ferguson Out Working Go To The Hell (Munich, 58).”
The message is, of course, in reference to the Munich Air Disaster of 1958, which killed 23 members of Manchester United’s travelling party returning from a European Cup match in Belgrade.
There was a strong reaction from Liverpool fans online, the vast majority of whom were quick to distance themselves and the club from the banner.
