The iconic statue of the Holy Trinity at Old Trafford of George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton will be protected by the organizers of the major protests against Glazer taking place before Sunday’s game against Liverpool.

Up to 10,000 United fans are expected to congregate at the stadium from 2pm and call on the club’s US bosses to step down and be replaced by a new model that will give fans ownership and voting rights.

The demonstration leaders were concerned about aspects of last week’s spontaneous protest, with some supporters scrambling on the statue and placing green and gold scarves over the three United legends.

They are aware that the rest of the world will be looking for signs of unrest and plan to protect the Holy Trinity from anyone who wants to get involved.

A strong statement about the attack on the Glazers is scheduled to be read in front of the statue at 3 p.m., an hour and a half before kick-off.

Best, Law and Charlton are synonymous with United’s history, helping Matt Busby rebuild the club after the Munich plane crash in 1958 and winning the European Cup 10 years later.
