Man City Bus Attacked By Liverpool Fans Outside Anfield Before Champions League Clash

Manchester City's bus was attacked by a group of Liverpool fans outside of Anfield tonight with beer cans, bottles and flares shattering windows and damaging the bus prior to the Champions League clash.

Before the tie, warnings had been issued by Liverpool football club while the route Manchester City were set to travel in by was changed but it did little to prevent fans attacking the coach resulting in smoke filling the bus before players disembarked.

Speaking on RTE Sport, Liam Brady expressed his surprise at the incident labeling it "disgusting." Fans had organised a 'legal' coach welcoming on social media prior to the game but it quickly split over.

Speaking before the game, Jurgen Klopp apologised to the club.

As for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, he accepted Klopp's apology.

I know that is not Liverpool. The story of the club is much bigger than these four, five or ten guys.
