A handful of supporters showed up in Carrington on Friday demanding the Glazer family sell.

And they also let the players know that they were “not fit to wear the shirt”.

Fans held up two banners, others also launched red flares outside the training facility.

The police were called, but the demonstration was described as “peaceful” with around 30 people present.

But that was followed by a huge anti-Glazer protest before and during the 3-2 win over Norwich.

Determined supporters descended on Old Trafford yesterday waving banners and chanting anti-Glazer sentiments.

The protest continued inside the Theater of Dreams, with some fans refusing to be seated until the 17th minute – marking one minute for each year of Glazer ownership.

And United have now issued a statement insisting on respecting the right of fans to express their views.


He said: “We are working hard to create the conditions for renewed success on the pitch, while strengthening our engagement with the fans.

“We respect the right of supporters to express their opinions peacefully and we will continue to listen to them, with the aim of working together to bring the club back to where we all want to be: competing for trophies.”

The final march was accompanied by various chants, including “We want Glazers out”, although some also heard “Joe Glazer is going to die”.

But there were plenty of full-time cheers after Cristiano Ronaldo’s searing free-kick sealed his hat-trick and a 3-2 win over Norwich.

As for the Glazer family, supporters want a major restructuring at board level in a bid to improve results on the pitch.

One fan said: “We just want to point out what’s going on. We want people to know this is not a good club.

“What transfers do is drive up the stock price or bring in sponsors.

“They’re not footballers. We’re not even close. It’s a mess.”

The Glazers are hoping to appease angry fans by soon appointing Erik ten Hag as Ralf Rangnick’s replacement.

The Ajax boss looks set to take charge of United this summer after facing competition from Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino.
