Liverpool Fans Furious With Behaviour Of Over-Zealous Stewards In Anfield

Liverpool Fans Furious With Behaviour Of Over-Zealous Stewards In Anfield

Liverpool fans are furious at the conduct of stewards during their home clash with Southampton on Saturday evening.

Jurgen Klopp's men won the game 3-0, but it was an incident in the stands that generated a strong reaction among the Anfield faithful in the aftermath of the result.

There has been a number of reports of a Liverpool fan being ejected for standing up and trying to take a picture. The fan was allegedly positioned in the back-row and had travelled a considerable distance in order to attend the fixture. A second fan also claims to have been ejected.

Liverpool FC's website does state a reason for the cancellation and withdrawal of tickets can be:

6.1.2 persistent standing in seated areas whilst the Match is in progress

However, the lack of common sense is striking, particularly in the first instance, given the individual appears to be seated in the back row and has spent a great deal of money to attend the fixture. The surrounding fans were strong in their defence of the individual repeatedly shouting "he's done nothing wrong."

Liverpool FC Peter Moore tweeted the following in response:

Head of Club and Supporter Liaison at Liverpool FC Tony Barrett has also confirmed he is aware of the reports.

In response to the second alledged incident, Peter Moore again was quick to follow up with reports:

The speedy response from the club is admirable although the initial reports did not reflect well on Liverpool's match-day experience. There is also an obvious contradiction between Jurgen Klopp's repeated calls for an improved atmosphere and a club rigorously forcing fans to remain seated throughout a game.

Hopefully the club can provide a conclusion that is satisfactory to all parties.
