Burnley FC has vowed to help “identify and prosecute” fans who engaged in “tragedy-related gesturing and chanting” during their 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Saturday.

The club has said it will support Greater Manchester Police in investigating reports of tragedy chanting at Old Trafford.

It follows a video circulating on social media which shows a man in the away end initially celebrating the Clarets' equaliser, before making a throat-slitting gesture and then appearing to do an impression of an aeroplane while shouting "Munich".

The alleged gesture is in reference to the Munich Air Disaster of 1958, when a plane crashed at an airport in the German city, killing 23 people on board and injuring 19 more, including eight Manchester United players - of the Busby Babes side - plus three United staff members, two journalists and the co-pilot.

In yesterday's game at Old Trafford, Zeki Amdouni coolly dispatched a late penalty to level at Old Trafford and earn a valuable point for the Clarets after Antony had opened the scoring with his first Premier League goal of the season.

However, this has been overshadowed as Burnley say they have been informed about “offensive footage” on social media from some of their travelling supporters on Saturday afternoon.

They released a club statement on X, which read: “We are aware of offensive footage currently circulating on social media from the away end of today’s fixture at Old Trafford.

“Tragedy-related gesturing and chanting is completely unacceptable, and Burnley Football Club take a zero-tolerance approach.

“We will continue to work with Greater Manchester Police, Lancashire Police and Manchester United to help identify and prosecute the individuals responsible.”
