Manchester United fans block entrance to Megastore in protest against Glazer ownership

Manchester United fans block entrance to Megastore in protest against Glazer ownership

Manchester United fans are staging their latest protest at Old Trafford against the Glazers.

Manchester United fans blocked the entrance to the club's megastore entrance as part of their latest protest against the Glazers.

United fans have regularly protested towards their long-time owners in recent times, including one that forced a game against Liverpool at Old Trafford to be cancelled a couple of years back.

And the supporters' group the 1958 have taken the decision to make their feelings clear once again on the day that United announced their new home kit for the 2023/24 season.

Tuesday's protest comes amid widespread frustration on the lack of movement in regards the club's mooted takeover.

Although the turnout wasn't monumental, around 100 fans displayed a slew of anti-Glazers banners and even blocked passage to the megastore for anyone wanting to buy the new Adidas strip.

In a statement confirming the protest plans beforehand, the 1958 said: "The overwhelming majority of United fans want to see a conclusion to this protracted sale process with the majority supporting a full sale, at least based on our soundings. Protest planned on Tuesday to make that message clear."

The words "full sale only" were visible on one banner, with many fans clearly not in favour of the Glazers continuing to have any involvement within the club.

The final round of bidding finished in April but has continued to rumble on. Sheikh Jassim and British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe both put forward their proposals but progress has slowed down, with no official word on a potential sale seven months after the Glazers announced they would "explore strategic alternatives for the club".

The takeover saga is beginning to seriously halt preparations for next season at United and former defender Patrice Evra has called for things to be wrapped up imminently before it's too late.

"We talk about this deal for how many months now? Since November," Evra told The Times.

"I think it is important for the fans, for the players and of course for Erik ten Hag. He is the right man [to be manager].

"We don’t know who is going to be the new owner. We are already 20 miles back from Manchester City. Now, the question is: Can we stop this circus and find a solution and [have] the owner come as soon as possible? We need to find it now, before the season starts. When the season starts, it is already too late."
