Man United chairman urged to engage with fans


Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has been advised by the club’s Supporters Trust to engage with fans following the protest that took place at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils’ Premier League match against Liverpool was called off after about 200 fans broke into the ground.

Fans were protesting against owners the Glazers, who they say have “driven the club into debt and decline”.

The trust said frustrations had reached “boiling point” on Sunday, which had led to the demonstration.

“Not one member of the Glazer family has ever had so much as a conversation with us,” they wrote in an open letter.

Fans have been angered by United’s decision, alongside five fellow Premier League clubs, to join the European Super League (ESL) last month, before subsequently all pulling out.

Glazer has since “apologised unreservedly” on behalf of the club for their involvement in the ESL but MUST have said it has no trust in the owners.

They [fans] also want the club to work with MUST and other supporters on a fan share scheme and consult season ticket holders on any significant changes at the club.

“This is the only way to move this issue on. We strongly suggest you take it,” the statement added.
