The Manchester United faithful have this afternoon become the latest Premier League fanbase to stage a protest against the club’s owners.
The Red Devils were of course one of a host of the continent’s heavyweights to have taken centre stage in the headlines last weekend.
This came after United announced themselves as one of twelve founding members of the European Super League.
The initiative, organised as an alternative to the Champions League, would have seen twenty clubs face off on a yearly basis, albeit in a ‘closed shop’ format.
Just 48 hours on from its initial unveiling, however, the ESL was brought to a grinding halt.
On the back of heavy backlash from fans, pundits, players and footballing institutions alike, the six Premier League clubs involved announced their respective decisions to turn their backs on the project on Tuesday night.
Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd and Spurs have all formally withdrawn from the European Super League.

The fallout stemming from the Super League push, however, has not yet come to an end.
After Chelsea’s fans were the first to stage a public protest against their club, the Arsenal faithful followed suit on Friday evening, as thousands flooded to the Emirates to call for Stan Kroenke to step down.
And now, on Saturday, such efforts have made their way to Old Trafford.
A series of photos and videos have surfaced online, showcasing Manchester United’s supporters making their way to the club’s ground in numbers, to stage a Glazer out protest:
