Manchester City Pay Tribute to Hillsborough 96 with Ad in Liverpool Programme

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIApril 13, 2014

This week marks the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, and Liverpool are set to play a potential title-decider against Manchester City on Sunday at Anfield. While the anniversary obviously holds a special significance to the home faithful, the visitors made a very classy gesture by buying a full-page advert in the match programme.

Good on Manchester City and hopefully the mutual respect will continue in what may well prove to be a decisive match.
