Manchester United Fans Plan 'Glazers Out' Protest Ahead Of Erik Ten Hag’s First Game At Old Trafford

Manchester United fans are continuing to make their feelings felt with further protests against the Glazer ownership planned for Erik ten Hag’s first home game against Rayo Vallecano on 31st July.

According to the Manchester Evening News, a group of supporters have declared their intention to continue the Anti-Glazer protests at Old Trafford ahead of Erik ten Hag’s final pre-season fixture against La Liga side, Rayo Vallecano.

The news comes just a day after the Glazers pushed through yet another £11 million dividend payment of which they are set to receive £8m.

A decision that Gary Neville slammed earlier this week on twitter by saying "It isn’t right with the investment needed in the team, stadium and training ground.

"The club's cash position is low compared to previous years. An announcement is needed to halt it for the next three years minimum."

Manchester United supporters continue to be angered at the Glazer family ownership of the club, in what has been a 17 year long, toxic relationship after the debt-saddled, hostile takeover in 2005. 

In those 17 years, the Glazer ownership has cost the club well over £1bn, hampering the Red Devils’ ability to keep up with their rivals on and off the pitch.

In contrast, Manchester City’s owners have pumped a similar amount into their club across the city and the results are there for all to see.

United will be looking to avoid a repeat of the protest from May last year when Liverpool were due to visit Old Trafford.

Supporters stormed the pitch which led to the game being cancelled due to the protests which was the first time it had happened in Premier League history.

Whilst empty promises continue to be made and the Glazer family quite literally not putting their money where their mouth is, protests are likely to continue.

This has been warned by Supporters Group ‘The 1958’ who are issuing regular statements and protest plans on their twitter page.

This isn’t the first time United fans have planned to demonstrate their concerns over the Glazer ownership this summer.

Last week, a protest was planned which ultimately led to Richard Arnold meeting fans at his local pub and it seems as though United fans show no signs of stopping.

The club CEO admitted that last season was a 'f**king nightmare' for himself and that United have 'f**king burned through cash' in the last decade.

Tensions amongst the fanbase are close to reaching an all-time high and whilst Richard Arnold did try to reassure supporters that the club were doing all they could, those words have fallen on deaf ears.

It’s just the latest example of words meaning nothing without action.
