New Anfield handbook tells Liverpool supporters to mind their language

Metro

Liverpool fans will have to mind their language when the new season begins – in case they upset players they believe ‘play like girls’.

The club have launched an attempt to cut down on what they term ‘discriminatory language’, with chants or shouts related to racial, religious, sexual, gender and disability jibes on the banned list.

Supporters at Anfield will no longer be able to tell players ‘don’t be a woman’ or ‘that’s gay’ in case it offends the player or other supporters.

The Reds confirmed they had produced an extensive handbook ‘designed to provide information on what terminology is deemed acceptable and unacceptable’.

The guide has not been given to players but has been dished out to all full-time and casual members of staff who have contact with the public on matchdays or on a daily basis.
