In recent hours, we have witnessed strange events in the English Premier League and the city of Manchester. Red Devils fans gathered at Old Trafford Stadium before the start of their beloved club’s crucial game against Liverpool to protest the performance of the Glazers, United’s owners. Of course, in recent days, we have witnessed a gathering of fans in the city of Manchester, but this trend was extended to the venue of the Manchester United vs Liverpool match today.
The protests escalated to the point that some Manchester United fans entered the stadium and, despite the best efforts of police forces, gathered for hours at Old Trafford to protest the club’s management.
It was initially announced that the match would start with a few hours delay, but Manchester United announced in a statement that it was not possible to hold the match and the match between the proudest teams of the island would be postponed to another time.
Manchester United vs Liverpool match cancellation
United fans are unhappy with the club’s policies, the performance of the Manchester United owner Glazer’s family, the club joining the Europa League and economic plans.
According to Fararu, fans protested the ownership of the American Glazer family over the club. The Glazer family also owns the American football club Tampa B. Buckneyers.
The Glazer family, who took over Manchester United in 2005 for ۷ 790 million, are looking to sell the club in their latest decision and end their Premier League career. That’s why the Times claimed that the Glazers were willing to sell Manchester United for a staggering 4 billion.
In this regard, the fans of the Red Devils have become very angry. That’s why Manchester City officials are worried about riots. Recent investigations indicate an increase in security forces around Old Trafford Stadium to prevent fans from gathering against the Glazers.
The Glazer family attributes the high price tag to the sale of Manchester United to United’s unique legacy and commercial traction. And buyers can consistently support large financial transactions. Manchester United recently signed a 235 million five-year deal with Chevrolet and it’s the big deals that make United so attractive.
Finally, we need to see what effect the change of ownership has on the performance of the Red Devils. It was initially announced that the match would start with a few hours delay, but Manchester United announced in a statement that it was not possible to hold the match and the match between the proudest teams of the island would be postponed to another time.
The cancellation comes as Manchester United’s defeat in that early title put Manchester City ahead four weeks after the end of the season.
