Man United And City Pay Respects To Terror Attack Victims

The two English clubs are working together to help Manchester terror attack victims
Manchester's two football clubs have united in the wake of the terrorist atrocity which claimed the lives of 22 people on Monday night.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City, as well as a number of prominent players at the two clubs, have expressed their condolences to the family and friends of the victims, some of whom were young children.

An explosion in the foyer of the Manchester Arena at 10.33pm caused panic inside the 21,000-capacity venue, where American pop singer Ariana Grande had just completed her concert.

Police have said at least 59 people are being treated for injuries at eight hospitals across the north-west city, while a help centre has been opened up at City's Etihad Stadium for those affected by the blast.

Old Trafford's club flag is being flown at half mast, while United and City each responded with short statements on social media.
United posted on their official Twitter account: "We are deeply shocked by last night's terrible events at the Manchester Arena. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected."
City's account posted: "It's with great sadness we hear of the terrible events at the Arena. Our hearts go out to all affected and to our city's emergency services."
