Liverpool-City remember United's Munich Air Disaster victims

Manchester United have been remembering those that died in the tragic Munich Air Disaster in 1958, with players and rival teams also sending their messages of unity.
23 people lost their lives after an aircraft carrying the United team crashed on its third attempt to take-off from the runway at Munich-Riem Airport on February 6, 1958.
The club plans to honour the victims, who included members of the famous 'Busy Babes' team, with a service outside Old Trafford on Monday.
Players, including the likes captain Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Ashley Young, posted tributes on their social media pages as a mark of respect for all those impacted by the tragedy.
United's traditional rivals on the pitch, Liverpool and Manchester City, also posted messages to remember those that perished, which also included members of the club's staff and eight journalists.
Juan Mata, meanwhile, dedicated part of his weekly blog to remembering the victims. He wrote: "This is always a very emotional day, a date to remember and to honour all of them, and also those who strove to respect and praise that legacy.
"This is one of the reasons that makes this club so special. There’s no day that you don’t remember that 6th of February when walking by Old Trafford. It’s always in our memories."
