. Assistant Chief Constable Wasim Chaudhry, said: “Our officers put their lives on the line every day to keep the people of Greater Manchester safe, and it is absolutely shameful that anyone would willingly assault an emergency worker. We simply will not tolerate this happening. "This incident also happened in the midst of the pandemic, when our emergency services were already stretched trying to reach those who needed us the most. “I hope these people feel ashamed of their actions and have some sense of remorse. I would like to add that GMP are fully aware that the majority of football supporters act in a respectful manner, and we thank those people."
