Manchester United and Liverpool hit with EUR40,000 fines


Manchester United and Liverpool have each been fined EUR40,000 by UEFA for illicit chanting by supporters during their Europa League last-16 tie.

UEFA charged both clubs in March over disturbances among fans, which also included objects being thrown and fireworks being set off, in the ill-tempered matches at Anfield and Old Trafford

Liverpool and United must pay a fine of EUR20,000 as a result of the chants, with a further EUR20,000 suspended for two years, while they have been hit with EUR17,000 and EUR18,000 fines respectively for "all other incidents".

Liverpool have also been ordered to contact United within 30 days for the settlement of damage caused by supporters, UEFA confirmed in a statement.

Jurgen Klopp's side won 2-0 at Anfield before a 1-1 draw in the second leg sent them through to the quarter-finals with a 3-1 aggregate win.
