Real Manchester United fans won’t accept the Glazers apology for the Super League fiasco … it was the tipping point and they need to sell it and return control to people who love their club

  • Thousands of fans will be at Old Trafford on Sunday to show their feelings
  • The message is clear – for the Glazers to leave our Manchester United club
  • We are not accepting an apology from Joel Glazer about the Super League
  • Man United supporters desire and deserve to be in control of the club they love

True Manchester United supporters have had enough of the Glazers. Thousands of fans will be at Old Trafford on Sunday to show the power of the feeling against the American owners.

The message is clear: that they are leaving our club.

We don’t accept Joel Glazer’s chubby apologies about the European Super League plan, and they have to sell out. Instead, we want proper fan involvement, similar to the 50 + 1 model in Germany.

I have been supporting United for half a century and have had the privilege of meeting club legends through my work for the Manchester Munich Memorial Foundation (MMMF), which honors the heroes who died in the 1958 plane crash.

I can see the irony that while senior figures at United discussed legacy and heritage with me, there were other conversations going on behind the scenes to steal our history.

Joel Glazer said sorry he misjudged the vote and claimed they appreciated the club’s traditions. Sorry, they don’t. Otherwise, they would have been in touch with supporters for the past 16 years and found out what Manchester United is all about. But they are not interested in that.

Think of Sir Matt Busby, a pioneer of English football whose work has established United’s name for decades. Was that worth throwing away for this franchise nonsense, test matches similar to the Harlem Globetrotters?

There are some great people working at Manchester United, but the fans don’t really count among these owners. The owners are not concerned about someone like me who started following the club when Denis Law was a player and understands what it means. They would rather have a ‘customer’ at Old Trafford with a GoPro camera on their head and a large bag of merchandise at their feet.

We all know what football has become – a global enterprise where owners view clubs as a commodity without understanding what is in the hearts of fans. Supporting a team is the only constant in your life. Friends, husbands, wives come and go, but not your football club. The Glazers talk about rebuilding relationships with the fans, but I’m not sure they were ever there for many people.

The Super League was a turning point. Manchester United supporters desire and deserve control of the club they love rather than money men having all the power. That’s what Sunday’s protest is about.
