Manchester United Owners Criticised By Gary Neville For £11 Million Dividends

Gary Neville has once again criticised the Glazers for their ownership of Manchester United, with the Americans set to take £11 million out of the club.

Neville has been one of the loudest critics of the Americans' ownership of the Premier League club in recent years, that has seen fans protest against them.

Earlier this year, the former right back called for the owners, who have been in charge at Old Trafford since May 2005, to step down or at least listen to his five point plan to improve the club.

They have yet to do either, and fans are once again getting frustrated at the fact that there has been no incomings so far this summer.

Now Neville's ire has been turned on the fact that the owners are going to be taking £11 million out of the club, rather than putting money into it.

"The Glazer Family should NOT be taking £11m in dividends this Friday," the Sky Sports pundit said on Twitter.

"It isn’t right with the investment needed in the team,stadium and training ground.

"The clubs cash position is low compared to previous years. An announcement is needed to halt it for the next 3 years minimum."

It's no wonder Neville has called out the problems with the club taking money out, as the Premier League side's debts continue to rise.

Last month's financial report showed that the debts had risen by another £52 million to £591 million in total, after the Glazers bought the club using loans.

Lack of communication from those at the top of the club has been one of the main criticisms, even though the Americans claimed it would improve in the aftermath of the European Super League disaster.

This week fans got surprise insight into the inner workings, when CEO Richard Arnold met a group of supporters at a pub and the conversation was secretly recorded.

Under Ralf Rangnick the team finished a pitiful sixth place in the Premier League last season and they'll be looking for significant improvement under Erik ten Hag.

It's not been a productive summer so far though, having missed out on Darwin Nunez to Liverpool, Jurrin Timber looks set to stay at Ajax and a move for Frenkie de Jong has still not materialised.
