Manchester United fans take on Leeds United fans


Manchester United and Leeds United fans were filmed as they clashed in Manchester city center ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game.

The two clubs meet in their season opener on Saturday afternoon, in the pair’s first league game with supporters in over 15 years.

Leeds were back in the top tier last season, but Covid-19 meant fans couldn’t attend games, or even travel to every rival city for them.

On Saturday, before the 12.30pm kick-off, fans were surprised in the Spinningfields area of ​​Manchester as they clashed in a heated exchange.

Sirens could be heard in the background of the video, taken from Deansgate Cafe Nero, before an officer showed up at the end to try to break up the violence.

Fans haven’t been in full force at Old Trafford since March 2020, which is the 2-0 win over local rivals Manchester City.

Some fans returned for the game against Fulham at the end of last season, where they witnessed Edinson Cavani’s brilliant goal.

Many fans also gathered outside United’s home ahead of the league game with Liverpool last season as they protested against the owners over their decision to join the now dormant European Super League.

Fans during Covid and Super League nonsense seemed to be united, but the first time they had to interact with each other things went awry.
