Manchester United defender and captain, Nemanja Vidic, is confident that the club’s fans will respect the Hillsborough memorial when they play Liverpool at the weekend.
It is Liverpool’s first game at home since more information was released about the Hillsborough disaster and it is expected to be an emotional day for everyone involved at Liverpool Football Club.
Before the game the two captains will let off 96 balloons in memory of the 96 people who lost their lives in 1989 and United captain, Vidic, has said that the travelling fans will respect Liverpool and will respect the occasion.
The Serbian defender said: ‘People always try to make a big thing out of a small one but I don’t have any worries.
‘We have shown many times in the past and I think we will be proud of them.
‘The big teams respect each other and we are going to play football.’
This news has come after a portion of the Man United fans were heard singing: ‘Always the victim, it’s never your fault’ during their home game with Wigan last weekend, but Vidic and manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, are both confident the fans won’t let them down.
