Man Utd fans protest at Old Trafford before the Liverpool game

Manchester United fans entered the Old Trafford pitch to protest against club owners the Glazer family after previously gathering outside the team’s hotel before Sunday’s match against Liverpool.

United’s commitment to the collapsed European Super League, which quickly collapsed, has restored the lingering vibe of ownership at Old Trafford.

Glazers, who acquired the club through a geared buyout in 2005, have long been unpopular, but have been the subject of increased criticism in recent weeks.

Fans surrounded The Lowry Hotel, where United stayed before home games, on Sunday, letting the red smoke bombs go off and leading anti-Glazer singing.

However, the demonstration did not end where some supporters gained access to the stadium and then the pitch.

Spectators are currently not allowed in Premier League stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskj√¶r said this week: “When the protests take place, it is important that they go in a good way and that we keep it peaceful.”

Defeat for United against bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday would see neighbors Manchester City give the title.
