Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has written a letter to fans travelling to Anfield this Sunday. It reads:
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre told talkSPORT: "It will be an emotional and big game for everybody.
"Obviously this is our first home game since the announcement and findings and it's a great opportunity for our fans to pay their respects and in many ways for everybody to pay respect to our fans".
He added: "We have massive respect for what Manchester United went through with their own tragedy and I remember in Kenny Dalglish's book he made the point that one of the first people to call him after the Hillsborough disaster was Sir Alex Ferguson, and that says it all".
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson fears the players could be affected by the emotion of Sunday's game against Liverpool.
The match will be the first for Liverpool at Anfield since an independent panel delivered the damning findings on the Hillsborough tragedy last week.
Having gone through a similar occasion four years - the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster - the Manchester United boss accepted that emotion may have an impact.
He said: "It's a possibility, I don't deny that. Human nature can be that way. When we played Manchester City for the 50th anniversary of Munich the place was so flat in the dressing room before the game. I even felt it myself.
"We just couldn't perform and were glad to get it out the way. It was such an emotional day for us and it could be that way on Sunday."
The Chief Constable of West Yorkshire dismissed suggestions today he should consider resigning following complaints alleging he supplied misleading information after the Hillsborough tragedy. Sir Norman Bettison is meeting currently with his police authority. Watch his comments from ITV Calendar.
A regulator will look at the way solicitors conducted themselves following the Hillsborough disaster. The Solicitors Regulation Authority says it has looked at last week's report by the Hillsborough Independent Panel which highlights "serious concerns".
Sir Norman Bettison insists it's "business as usual". His future is being discussed today by West Yorkshire Police Authority.
