Wout Weghorst uses anti-Glazers footage in Man Utd promo video ahead of Real Betis match

Wout Weghorst has used footage of a 'Glazers Out' protest in a video to promote tonight's fixture against Real Betis.

Manchester United resume their Europa League campaign on Thursday following their 7-0 drubbing of Liverpool last weekend.

Erik ten Hag's side imploded at Liverpool as they suffered their biggest defeat to their arch rivals.

They'll look to bounce back as they host the La Liga outfit in the first-leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.


And ahead of the Old Trafford showdown, Weghorst has shared a video on social media to hype up Man United fans.

He's uploaded footage from a protest against the Glazers, with people online thinking he's trying to get back in their good books following his Anfield mishap.

One Twitter user wrote: "I love that - although i know it’s a tactic from his PR team after his recent antics at Anfield. Love it nonetheless lol."


A second tweeted: "He (/his media team) know what they’re doing."

A third added: "He needs to redeem himself for touching the Anfield sign..."

A fourth commented: "Trying to get back in the good books."

Another said: "He knows how to get the top reds back on board you've got to respect it."


Weghorst came under fire from his own fans after he was filmed touching the 'This Is Anfield' sign prior to Liverpool vs. Man United.


But he defended his actions by claiming he was trying to 'wind up' Virgil van Dijk.

"Normally I never react on media topics, but for this one it's worth it because you amazing United fans are important to me. So I just want to clarify the video that is doing the rounds," he wrote in a post on Instagram story.


"From the National team I know that Virgil always touches that sign and I went to stop him touching it to try and wind him up before the game.

"As a child I always supported FC Twente, and as a proud player for Manchester United, my dedication to this incredible club can never be questioned.

"Sunday was a terrible day for all of us, we are putting everything into making it right in the next weeks. We will bounce back together and achieve our aims this season."

Weghorst could feature as Man United take on Real Betis.
