Speaking at a presser ahead of tomorrow’s match with Galatasaray, said:

“I didn’t hear it [the chants at the Wigan game], but everyone else seemed to hear it. heard it in the director’s box and was disappointed.

“The chant is a new chant. It only started after the Suarez situation [the forward was found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra last season].

“But in the current climate and having spoken on Friday, asking our supporters to adhere to the policy that we want to adopt – that we’re completely in support of Football Club at this moment in time and we understand what those families must have felt during the week when they got that report – it was disappointing to hear that.

“It’s a minority, though, and in society there’s a minority who want to be heard. That’s the difficultly you’ve got nowadays.

“As a club we’re totally in support of and the situation they’re in. It’s going to be a very emotional day on Sunday and we’ll support them in every way we can.”
