Richard Masters condemns Liverpool fans who partied
Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has added his voice to those who have condemned those Liverpool fans who took to the streets to party in the aftermath of their club’s first league title in 30-years.
Speaking to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee on Tuesday, Richard Masters said:
What happened that night was regrettable, it was wrong. It got out of hand… (but) individuals have to take responsibility for their own actions.
I think Liverpool had played a strong part in trying to discourage the very things which have happened.

What happened in Liverpool?
Last week thousands of Liverpool fans poured onto the streets to celebrate the club’s success.
While the first night of celebrations passed without much criticism, that wasn’t true after a second night turned uglier.
Videos appeared on social media of Liverpool fans causing social unrest in the streets.
The Daily Mail reported that police had “had glasses and bottles thrown at them”, while 15 people were arrested.

Leicester vs Crystal Palace may be postponed
Leicester are due to host Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League.
However, the UK government have confirmed that Leicester is to remain in lockdown due to a new spread of coronavirus cases in the city.
Leicester’s latest lockdown is expected to last two weeks.
Considering those issues, Richard Masters confirmed that the Leicester vs Crystal Palace game may have to switch venues. He said:
If what is happening does affect the club’s ability to host games – either the match against Crystal Palace or subsequent matches – then we have the opportunity to put those matches elsewhere or postpone them until a date which it is safe to do so.
