Liverpool Fans Hire Plane To Fly Over Manchester United’s Training Camp In Perth
Manchester United's training camp in Australia was gatecrashed by Liverpool fans flying a banner overhead with a cheeky message.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side trained at the WACA Ground in Perth with a banner that read "Liverpool 6x European Champions" circling in the sky above.

It appears the cheeky fan has splashed a considerable amount of cash to troll Solskjaer's side ahead of the new season.
According to local agency Air Ads, a two-hour flight with an advertising message costs AU$1,150 (£640).
United took part in an open training session at the WACA ahead of their first game of the tour against Perth Glory on Saturday 13 July.
Solskjaer's side will then come up against rivals Leeds United on Wednesday 17 July.
Perhaps the plane message will be more of a motivation that anything else.

It has been an eventful few days in Perth, to say the least.
The tour appeared to take a sour turn on Monday when Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard 'clashed' in the street.
Pogba, who has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks, exchanged words Lingard and many presumed by their body language that tensions were high.
Did Lindelof just have to break up something between Pogba and Lingard?! :flushed::sweat_smile: I've slowed it down for a closer look. #mufc pic.twitter.com/LVSp4SaGZC

The brief exchange between the pair left plenty of fans talking on social media but 24 hours after the clip went viral, new footage of the incident emerged online.
It clearly shows Pogba and Lingard laughing and joking around shortly after Victor Lindelof threw his arms around the French midfielder.
Can Manchester United challenge for the Premier League or will it be another season of disappointment?
