Anti-Ownership Protest Causes Manchester United Game Postponement
By admin - May 4, 2021
It’s been a bit hectic in the UK with the anti-ownership protest because of the American owner not selling the club back to where it belongs. Fans have been kept out of the games since the pandemic hit. Here are the highlights:
- Both United and Liverpool weren’t able to get to the stadium where clashes between fans and the police happened briefly
- Even though the fans began to disperse around the game was scheduled to start, United postponed the game because of safety and security reasons.
- United respected the fans and their passion behind Man United. Not to mention, they have the right to protest, but the disruption caused major concern.
- The Premier League said they respect the feelings of the fans, but they sympathize with the police and stewards that had to deal with the mess.
- Fans were chanting “Get out of our club.” This is in opposition to Glazer owning Man United.
- Supporters should up big time with green and gold scarves and set off flares in the colors of the club’s 1878 formation.
- United and Liverpool were among six teams to potentially create the exclusive European Super League. However, wide-range opposition shut this down in a matter of 48 hours after the announcement was made.
