Hillsborough disaster: Liverpool Players, officials gather to pay respect, 30 years after




Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson laid a wreath at the Anfield memorial on the 30th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster on Monday.

The first team, Under 23s side and Liverpool Ladies all came together to pay their respects outside the stadium.

The players and staff all took their time to read the tributes that had been paid to the 96 fans that lost their lives in 1989.

A minute’s silence was held before Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday and Liverpool will fall silent at 3:06pm – the time the game between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest was stopped – on Monday.

Ninety-six lanterns were lit on the steps of St George’s Hall on Monday morning to mark 30 years since the disaster at the FA Cup semi-final.   

Pictures of the men, women and children who lost their lives in the crush on the Leppings Lane terrace of Sheffield Wednesday’s ground were displayed on banners with the words ‘Never forgotten’ and flowers were laid by family members, local politicians and members of the public.
