The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

A sup­porter re­spon­si­ble for dis­play­ing an “of­fen­sive” ban­ner about Liver­pool striker Divock Origi dur­ing the Cham­pi­ons League match in Genk on Wed­nes­day has been iden­ti­fied. An­field of­fi­cials li­aised with po­lice to have the ban­ner, which they said “per­pet­u­ated a racist stereo­type”, re­moved. Uefa will await the re­ports of the match ref­eree and del­e­gate be­fore de­cid­ing whether to open a dis­ci­plinary in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Mean­while, the High Court is ex­pected to give its rul­ing to­day on whether Liver­pool can en­ter into a new kit deal with sports­wear gi­ant Nike. It is op­posed by cur­rent sup­pli­ers New Bal­ance.
