English Football Coach Gary Neville says he supports Manchester United Fans protests yesterday insisting that these protest emanated from fans “distrust and dislike” of United owners .
His remarks came as Roy Keane, another former United captain, also backed the supporters and said “this was just the start” of their campaign to remove the owners.
Gary Neville also went on to say that the Man U owners, the Glazer family have to sell Manchester United after Sunday’s dramatic protests.
“There’s huge discontent. They’re basically saying enough is enough. The Glazer Family have been resilient and stubborn for many years. I think they’re struggling to meet the financial demands this club needs and have done for some time, he said”.
He also added that these protests emanated from what happened two weeks ago when Manchester United was part of European teams who wanted to join the Super League.
“This is a consequence of the Manchester United owners’ actions two weeks ago, there is a general distrust and dislike of the owners, but they weren’t protesting two or three weeks ago, said Neville.”
The former Sky Sport Commentator insisted that Manchester United Owners were reluctant in terms of infrastructural refurbishment reiterating that the Glazers family were failing to provide required services for the club as he went on to say that it was better for them to put the club for sale.
“If you think about the club they picked up in 2004, they had the best stadium in the country, probably one of the best in Europe; the best training ground in this country, probably the best training ground in Europe; the team was getting to Champions League semi-finals, quarter-finals and finals regularly and winning the league every season or every other season.
“You look at the club now. This stadium, if you go behind the scenes, is rusty and rotting. The training ground is probably now not even in the top five in this country. They haven’t got to a Champions League semi-final for 10 years and haven’t won the league for eight years. The land around the ground is undeveloped, dormant and derelict when every other club seems to be developing their facilities and their fan experiences.
