Manchester United fans break into the training ground in protest
The European Super League may be dead, but Manchester United fans are still angry about it. Club supporters broke into the team’s training ground on Thursday to protest against team owner Joel Glazer.
United confirmed the news in a statement to ESPN.
“About 9 a.m. [BST on Thursday] One group was given access to the club’s training ground, “confirmed a statement from United.” The manager and others spoke to them. The buildings were safe and the group has now left the site. “
Fans reportedly blocked entrances to the facility when players and staff arrived. About 20 fans reportedly came into the facility with banners saying “Glazers out” and “We decide when you play”.
Joel Glazer apologized for the Super League
Glazer was supposed to be the vice chairman of the Super League. In a statement announcing league Sunday, Glazer was enthusiastic about its creation, which would include Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid, among others.
That excitement quickly subsided when fans, players and coaches vehemently opposed the Super League. Glazer and Liverpool owner John Henry apologized for leading the plan, but the damage was done. Although league plans were quickly put on hold after the teams were eliminated, fans are still angry with Glazer and Henry, two American owners who essentially tried to steal European football.
Liverpool will continue their season on Saturday while Manchester United will play again on Sunday. Given the hostility the Super League has caused, fans are likely to continue to express their frustration with Glazer and Henry during these games.
