Man United protesters chanting death threats against Joel Glazer in Manchester

by Red Billy


Manchester United fans have gathered in their thousands to protest against the Glazer family at the Tollgate, Manchester.

Protesters could be heard singing “Joel Glazer’s gonna die”.

The protest is intended to be peaceful and the crowd is expected to march to the “Trinity” statue of George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton at 7pm.

However, the nature of the chants so far is unpleasant and does not bode well for what might be to come at the entrance to the ground.

Fans have also been asked to not enter the stadium for tonight’s match against Liverpool as a statement of protest against the majority shareholders and de facto owners of the club.

Cans of beer have been thrown at a coach with chants of “murderers”.

Fans have been pulling down barricades set up by the police.

Fans are now marching toward the stadium.

Whether the Glazers will listen to the protesters remains to be seen. Some reports have claimed that the family is now divided, with some members wanting to sell their shares and others, notably Joel Glazer, keen to continue.

Last week both Michael Knighton and Britain’s richest man, Jim Ratcliffe, stated their intention to buy the club.

As kick-off approaches, the stadium is less than half full, suggesting that fans have listened to the rallying call to boycott the game.
