Angry Man Utd fans plan new anti-glazer protest ahead of Erik ten Hag’s first Prem match against Brighton

MANCHESTER UNITED fans are planning a fresh anti-glazer protest ahead of Erik ten Hag’s first game in charge this weekend.

Club bosses had hoped the Dutchman’s appointment would help quell the growing unrest among supporters in recent seasons.

But their hopes seem to be in vain, as the support group The 1958 is organizing a protest for this Sunday.

According to the Telegraph, The 1958 want fans to gather at Salford Quays two hours before the 2pm kick-off against Brighton before the march to Old Trafford.

In an appeal posted to their Twitter account, The 1958 wrote, “The Glazers are unsuitable and inappropriate owners.”

They then added: “We will always support the club. We will always support the manager. We will always rise up against the current owners and any puppet hierarchy they appoint.

“The future of our club is our only motivation.

“Some things are worth fighting for.”

The 1958 are to hope that they can see the entrances to the East Stand Megastore and the directors’ entrance closed.

It was disgruntled members of The 1958 that CEO Richard Arnold met at a pub in June.

In a secretly taped meeting, Arnold admitted he was unhappy with the way the club had been operating in recent years.

He said: “I don’t think we’ve done well with the money we’ve spent in the past.

“We blew an enormous amount of money.

“Last year was a bloody nightmare. I hated every minute of it.”

United’s last three home games last season have been the subject of fan protests.

While a behind-closed-doors Premier League clash with Liverpool in May 2021 was postponed after protesting United fans stormed into Old Trafford.

Ten Hag’s first summer as manager has been marred by two transfer sagas.

Cristiano Ronaldo reported for pre-season training just last week and is determined to leave United just a year after his return.

The 37-year-old left Old Trafford ten minutes from the end of the 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano after getting hooked at half-time, with Man United unfazed by his behaviour.

United, meanwhile, have been chasing Frenkie de Jong all summer, although a deal looks difficult to finalize with the start of the season looming.
