Thursday, October 24, 2019- A section of Liverpool fans have sparked outrage over a banner displayed during their Champions League match against Genk targeting striker Divock Origi.

The offensive banner was quickly removed and the club has condemned the incident terming the behavior unacceptable.
“This is completely unacceptable. Liverpool Football Club condemns the offensive banner displayed in our section of the ground, prior to kick-off.
