Since then, a number of alarming takeaways from this afternoon’s Manchester United-Leeds United meeting have been widely featured on social media.

One of the fiercest rivalries in English football was renewed today at Old Trafford.

The clash in question came as part of the first round of Premier League matches for the 2021/22 campaign, in the form of a clash between Man United and Leeds.

He was the first to address the proceedings as an understandable favorite, having emerged, of course, on the right side of a 6-2 scoreline in the same game last season.

What few likely expected, however, was that the result would prove equally one-sided this time.

A wonderful display of attack by the hosts, orchestrated by the unplayable Paul Pogba, finally culminated with the hosts starting their 2021/22 tenure with a 5-1 victory.

Bruno Fernandes stole the headlines with a magnificent hat-trick, while Mason Greenwood and Fred also scored United’s goal.

Leeds, on the other hand, saw Luke Ayling’s draw early in the second half finally turned out to be little more than comfort.

The fans clash

However, as outlined above, on a day that should have seen the hugely entertaining action on Old Trafford pitch take center stage in the post-match talk, a number of more negative takeaways have unfortunately been widely highlighted. in the media. .

The first came in the form of brawls on the streets of Manchester, which began long before the action had started at the Theater of Dreams:

Leeds supporters then showed off their most recent chant, targeting United attackers Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford for their respective shortcomings in the Euro 2020 final kick:

Such antics, in turn, always resulted in a tense atmosphere among the Old Trafford attendees, and things, on more than one occasion, were on the verge of exploding between the two groups of supporters.

A Manchester United fan, for example, was seen taunting Leeds supporters with a Turkish flag.

For those unaware of the situation, this was an unhealthy reference to the violence surrounding the 2000 UEFA Cup semi-final clash between Leeds and Galatasaray, which ultimately culminated in the deaths of two fans of the former in Turkey.

It is understood then that the same flag has been fallen into the crowd at Old Trafford, prompting more ugly scenes, as sections of the Leeds support in attendance resorted to shouting long-deplored ‘Munich’ chants – a totally disgusting reference to the 1958 Munich air disaster.

A wonderful afternoon in the country, but full of shameful behavior outside of it.
