Controversy broke out, following Manchester City and Burnley. A banner with the words “White Lives Matter Burnley” ruins an evening full of goals.
The 5 to 0 sound inflicted to the City against Burnley, goes unnoticed due to the irresponsible gesture staged yesterday evening by some guest fans. In fact, a few minutes after the kick-off, a banner with clear racial insults appeared on the sidelines fireld.
The reasons for this gesture are not yet clear and investigations are currently underway to find those responsible.
In a half-time statement, Burnley declared himself unaware and not responsible for the gesture, condemning the authors and making himself available to help law enforcement officers identify, isolate and condemn the perpetrators of the insane gesture.
At the end of the match, finally, the official apologies of the President of Burnely also arrived.
