He added: “I alone am responsible for the unnecessary negativity brought forward over the past couple of days. It’s something I won’t forget. And shows the power the fans have today and will rightly continue to have.
“If there’s one thing this horrible pandemic has clearly shown, it’s how crucial fans are to our sport and to every sport. It’s shown in every empty stadium. It’s been an incredibly tough year for all of us; virtually no-one unaffected.
“It’s important that the Liverpool football family remains intact, vital and committed to what we’ve seen from you globally, with local gestures of kindness and support. I can promise you I will do whatever I can to further that.”
Elsewhere, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will step down and it is thought that he underestimated the backlash for the Super League, and that is why he has tendered his resignation.
Woodward was due to leave anyway at the end of 2021 but accepts he has made a huge mistake amid the fallout over the ESL plans and could leave in the summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.
