Ole responds to fans protest


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called on the team to stick together following fan protests against the club’s owners and Ed Woodward at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Red Devils supporters loudly chanted ‘we want Glazers out’ and sang profanities against executive vice-chairman Woodward during United’s 4-0 win over Norwich.

The sentiment spread to other parts of the stadium during the second half and some anger was directed towards Woodward by fans exiting at full time.

“I am not sure if the players got it. I noticed it, yeah. As a club, we have got to stick together and be united,” said Solskjaer.

“We are a family and I can only say from my time here I have been backed by the owners and backed by Ed. They are supporting me so we have to stick together.”

Before the game against Liverpool in October, supporters marched outside the ground with a banner which read “Glazers out, Woodward out. £1bn stolen from MUFC,” while a plane was flown over the ground with a banner reading: “Ed still failing, Woodward out.”
