Man United protests

Since the fiasco of last week’s Super League birth and collapse, fans of England’s ‘big six’ clubs have been protesting against their owners.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all seen highly publicised organised events around their stadia.

101‘s social team travelled to Old Trafford to get exclusive insight into the protests, show supporters who couldn’t attend what the atmosphere was like, and speak to those who feel aggrieved with how they have been treated.

Solskjaer backs Glazers

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer risks the backlash of supporters, after speaking positively of the club’s Glazer owners.

When asked about his relationship with the ownership, the Norwegian revealed that they have been ‘very supportive’ of his efforts, with a ‘good’ bond existing between the parties:

“I’ve had an open and good relationship with them [the Glazers] and they’ve been very supportive of me, they’ve backed me. It’s all about improving the club, the infrastructure, the facilities and the squad. I am very confident they will remain committed,” said Solskjaer.

It is not surprising to see a club employee speak highly of his superiors, for obvious reasons.

Mikel Arteta spoke similarly of Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke, when recently quizzed on his relationship with the American.

“No, I feel very supported by everybody at the club,” Arteta said when asked if he felt let down by the Gunners chief.

“I feel privileged, again, and I will say it loud and clear, again, the way we have dealt with this pandemic internally with all the issues that we had in recent months, there have been loads and unprecedented for this football club, internally and externally, I still see everybody coming here with a smile on their faces and proud to represent this football club.

“This for me is a big achievement and something I’m really proud about because everybody is contributing to that, from the top to the bottom of the club.”

Arsenal and Manchester United supporters will be hoping that change is on the horizon.

Despite this, though, the likelihood is that little will change, between now and the end of the season at least.

Glazers want £4bn

It has been reported by The Mirror that the Glazers want £4 billion to sell Man United.

There are certainly individuals out there who could stump up the cash to acquire the club, but they must be found.

The price tag is said to have been derived from the Red Devils’ stature, history, success and financial and commercial standing in global sport.
