Manchester United fans mount protest against US owners ahead of Liverpool game


Many Manchester United supporters are unhappy over the club’s failed attempt to join the European Super League last month. The Glazer family, which also owns the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, runs the club.

“After the security breach at Old Trafford we can confirm the Manchester United v Liverpool match will not kick-off at 16:30 BST,” said the Premier League’s live blog.

“The safety of everyone at Old Trafford is paramount. At present there is no revised kick-off time.”

Manchester United and Greater Manchester Police did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.

“Hundreds of fans have been on the pitch and many are now exiting through gates across a road that normally allows the team buses through,” wrote BBC reporter Simon Stone, who is at Old Trafford.
Manchester United — and Liverpool — were two of the 12 clubs that last month announced their intention to breakaway from the current UEFA competition format and create their very own European Super League, before the project quickly unraveled.

“We are disgusted, embarrassed and angry at the owner’s actions in relation to the planning, formation and announcement of the European Super League,” said the Manchester United Supporters Trust at an emergency fans forum meeting on Friday.

“Once again this clearly demonstrates that the club’s owners are only interested in maximising their own profits and do not care about or respect the views of Manchester United fans.”
