FA Cup Final Recap: Manchester City vs Manchester United 1:2 (Sport1)
A Manchester United fan was arrested at Wembley on Saturday over a shirt with offensive writing he wore during the match between United and Manchester City in the FA Cup final.
On social media, a picture was posted of the fan, who was wearing a shirt with the number 97 on the back of his white shirt, under the words "Not enough." It was a reference to the 97 Liverpool fans who lost their lives as a result of the Hillsborough tragedy in the 1989 FA Cup semi-final.

London police tweeted that the fan had been taken into custody on suspicion of a public order offence. "We are aware of this and have proactively worked with Wembley officials to identify the man," the statement said, "He was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and taken into custody."
Former Liverpool player Stan Collymore wrote on Twitter: "Having trouble finding out why someone would buy a shirt and then print numbers and words on it to display it at a football match. Who will print it? It celebrates a tragedy that still today, now, affects so much."
Police also said they were reviewing CCTV footage after an object was thrown at Manchester United player Victor Lindelof after the first-half equaliser. A Manchester City fan was also seen celebrating in the stands while waving a plane into the air, believed to be teasing rivals United over the Munich disaster, in which eight of the club's players were killed in a plane crash in 1958.
