'Hatred got the better of me': Liverpool fan boasts tattoo on buttocks mocking Manchester United Munich crash

'Hatred got the better of me': Liverpool fan boasts tattoo on buttocks mocking Manchester United Munich crash

By Alex Morrissey

A Liverpool fan who had ‘Munich 58’ tattooed on his backside in the aftermath of Sunday’s defeat to Manchester United has been condemned online.

Paul McCabe posted his marked buttocks on Twitter, claiming that he had let his 'hatred' for United get 'the better of' him.

The insolent tattoo refers to the 1958 disaster when United’s chartered plane crashed on takeoff in Munich killing 23 people on board.

The foolish fan has since deleted his account, but not after receving a mountain of criticism from football fans.

One poster on the site, Colin Nagle, said: “As a Liverpool fan I find this disgraceful.

“Whether it’s Hillsborough or the Munich disaster it’s important to respect the dead. IdiotLad.”


IDIOT: Permanent tramp stamp asked for by one foolish Liverpool 'fan'

Nine united players nicknamed the ‘Busby babes’ and three members of staff died on their way back from a European game with Red Star Belgrade in former Yugoslavia.

Fans of other clubs such as Everton, Birmingham and Rangers were also quick to criticise the fool’s actions.

Mark Johnston said: “Disgraceful, when it comes to things like this e.g Munich, 96, Ibrox, we are not fans of Liverpool, Man United, Rangers.

“We are fans of football and shouldn’t mock any disaster.”

Fans of both clubs were praised for their behaviour in the game in September, Liverpool’s first at home after the release of the Hillsborough inquest files.

And the historically fiery encounter passed without major incidents during United’s 2-1 win at Old Trafford.
