Liverpool issue apology after fans attacked Manchester City bus

The Manchester City team bus suffered a smashed window on its approach to Anfield as Liverpool fans ignored warnings over flares and smoke bombs ahead of their Champions League quarter-final.
City have confirmed they are seeking new transport for their return journey to Manchester after the coach was pelted with cans and bottles in a hostile reception from Reds supporters on Arkles Lane.

Liverpool apologised to City ahead of kick-off and said they condemn in the strongest possible terms the scenes outside the ground, in which two police officers were injured, after the bus route was changed amid safety concerns earlier on Wednesday.

A statement read "The club condemns in the strongest possible terms the scenes which preceded our Champions League quarter-final, which resulted in damage being inflicted on the Manchester City team bus during their arrival at Anfield, we apologise unreservedly to Pep Guardiola, his players, staff and officials caught up in the incident. The behaviour of a number of individuals was completely unacceptable and the club will cooperate fully with the authorities to identify those responsible."
