Police have confirmed that the confiscated all of the copies of the United fanzine, Red Issue, that were floating around outside Old Trafford today which featured cut-out ‘Suarez Is Innocent’ Ku Klux Klan masks for United fans to hold in front of their faces to bait Liverpool as the teams emerged from the tunnel.
These are those…
It’s just a ghost right? The ghost of Suarez’s innocence?
So said police bod Chief Superintendent Mark Roberts said:
“Shortly before kick-off we were made aware that a Manchester United supporters’ fanzine was being sold outside Old Trafford featuring a potentially offensive image.
“We have seized the fanzines and masks] as both items are potentially offensive and we cannot be in a situation where hundreds or thousands of people were displaying offensive images at a football match.
“The consequences of taking no action could have resulted in public order incidents inside or outside the ground.”
But officer, it’s only BAAAAAAAAANTAAAAAAAH!!!!
