Glazers finally respond to fan protests

Manchester‌ ‌United’s‌ ‌ownership‌ ‌have‌ ‌agreed‌ ‌with‌ ‌fans‌ ‌that‌ ‌there‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌need‌ ‌for‌ ‌change.‌ ‌

As‌ ‌widely‌ ‌reported,‌ ‌the‌ ‌club’s‌ ‌angry‌ ‌fanbase‌ ‌raided‌ ‌the headquarters‌ ‌to‌ ‌ask‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌Glazers‌ ‌to‌ ‌leave‌ ‌
the‌ ‌club‌, thanks to the‌ ‌UEFA‌ ‌Super‌ ‌League‌ ‌breakaway‌ ‌scandal.‌ ‌

In‌ ‌a‌ ‌letter‌ ‌signed‌ ‌by‌ ‌Joel‌ ‌Glazer,‌ ‌the‌ ‌Director‌ ‌apologized‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌masses‌ ‌and‌ ‌promised‌ ‌the‌ ‌due‌ ‌
changes.‌ ‌

"I‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌acknowledge‌ ‌the‌ ‌need‌ ‌for‌ ‌change,‌ ‌with‌ ‌deeper‌ ‌consultation‌ ‌with‌ ‌you‌ ‌as‌ ‌our‌ ‌main‌ ‌fan‌ ‌
representative‌ ‌body‌ ‌across‌ ‌a‌ ‌range‌ ‌of‌ ‌important‌ ‌issues,‌ ‌including‌ ‌the‌ ‌competitions‌ ‌we‌ ‌play‌ ‌in,"‌ ‌
he‌ ‌said.‌ ‌

"We‌ ‌also‌ ‌recognise‌ ‌the‌ ‌importance‌ ‌of‌ ‌fan‌ ‌and‌ ‌football‌ ‌interests‌ ‌being‌ ‌embedded‌ ‌in‌ ‌key‌ ‌
decision-making‌ ‌processes‌ ‌at‌ ‌every‌ ‌level‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌club,‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌open‌ ‌to‌ ‌constructive‌ ‌
discussions‌ ‌on‌ ‌how‌ ‌to‌ ‌reinforce‌ ‌that‌ ‌principle.‌ ‌

"We‌ ‌remain‌ ‌committed‌ ‌to‌ ‌working‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌wider‌ ‌football‌ ‌community‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌the‌ ‌game‌ ‌stronger‌ ‌
and‌ ‌more‌ ‌sustainable‌ ‌over‌ ‌the‌ ‌long-term,‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌will‌ ‌now‌ ‌refocus‌ ‌our‌ ‌efforts‌ ‌on‌ ‌doing‌ ‌this‌ ‌
within‌ ‌the‌ ‌existing‌ ‌structures‌ ‌of‌ ‌UEFA‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌Premier‌ ‌League.‌ ‌

"Our‌ ‌top‌ ‌priority‌ ‌is,‌ ‌and‌ ‌will‌ ‌always‌ ‌be,‌ ‌competing‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌most‌ ‌important‌ ‌trophies,‌ ‌playing‌ ‌
entertaining‌ ‌football‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌team‌ ‌comprised‌ ‌of‌ ‌top-quality‌ ‌recruits‌ ‌and‌ ‌some‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌world's‌ ‌best‌ ‌
homegrown‌ ‌talent.‌ ‌Under‌ ‌Ole,‌ ‌we‌ ‌feel‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌absolutely‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌right‌ ‌track.‌ ‌

"Success‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌field‌ ‌must‌ ‌be‌ ‌underpinned‌ ‌by‌ ‌solid‌ ‌foundations‌ ‌off‌ ‌it.‌ ‌We‌ ‌have‌ ‌supported‌ ‌
sustained‌ ‌investment‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌team‌ ‌over‌ ‌many‌ ‌years,‌ ‌and‌ ‌that‌ ‌will‌ ‌continue‌ ‌this‌ ‌summer.‌ ‌

"We‌ ‌recognise‌ ‌that‌ ‌we‌ ‌will‌ ‌need‌ ‌to‌ ‌significantly‌ ‌increase‌ ‌investment‌ ‌in‌ ‌Old‌ ‌Trafford‌ ‌and‌ ‌our‌ ‌
training‌ ‌complex‌ ‌to‌ ‌ensure‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ ‌club's‌ ‌facilities‌ ‌remain‌ ‌among‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌in‌ ‌Europe.‌ ‌As‌ ‌part‌ ‌of‌ ‌
this,‌ ‌we‌ ‌will‌ ‌consult‌ ‌with‌ ‌fans‌ ‌on‌ ‌investments‌ ‌related‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌stadium‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌matchday‌ ‌
experience,”‌ ‌he‌ ‌concluded.‌ ‌

Coming‌ ‌up‌ ‌next‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌Red‌ ‌Devils‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌visit‌ ‌of‌ ‌Leicester‌ ‌City‌ ‌on‌ ‌Tuesday‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌league‌ ‌game.‌ ‌
