Liverpool Show Real Class With Twitter Tribute For Munich Air Crash

Liverpool Show Real Class With Twitter Tribute For Munich Air Crash

As far as football rivalries go, you don’t get much bigger than the one between Liverpool and Manchester United.

While the Merseyside club dominated English football from the late 70s into the early 80s, United bulldozed their competitors during the late 90s right through the millennium.

But today the footballing rivalry was made truly irrelevant as Liverpool marked the 56th anniversary of the Munich air crash with a touch of real class via Twitter.

The crash, which killed 23 United players, supporters and journalists on its third attempt to take off from a slush-covered runway in Munich, took place on the 2nd of February 1958.

Unfortunately, down the years a small minority of the Liverpool support have been caught singing disgraceful chants about the disaster but in recent times the club have done an excellent job of banning these ‘supporters’ from Anfield.

And Liverpool have once again shown their true class today after posting this message via their official Twitter account:

The message should remind us all that while we love the beautiful game, the rivalries which make it so great aren’t everything.
