Further fan protests are expected before the end of the season but Football Supporters’ Association chairman Malcolm Clarke insists consultation over regulation of club ownership is crucial.

Clarke was speaking after Manchester United ’s Premier League clash at home to Liverpool was postponed by the Premier League following mass protests from the home side’s fans over the Glazer’s ownership of their club.

“We expect everyone to keep within the law so they can make their feelings felt that way, but we will be working with supporters organisations at all the clubs – including the rebel six – to ensure the evidence we give to Tracey Crouch is robust, well thought out and can produce some real solutions.” Clarke reiterated the significance of fan involvement in football being elevated to the top of the political agenda in the UK, with the breakaway Super League plans acting as the catalyst.

However, he clarified that the FSA is focusing on providing information to an investigation into the governance of football, which is being overseen by former sports minister Tracey Crouch, as confirmed last month by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Clarke has now claimed that more fan protests are inevitable - both at United and other clubs in the Premier League’s so-called ‘big six’, who were among the founding members of the Super League, before later withdrawing from the proposals following huge fan backlash.

Clarke told the PA news agency: “Obviously it demonstrates the strength of feeling of the Manchester United supporters over what has happened in the last couple of weeks and wider what many of them feel about their owners, the Glazer family.

“I am delighted with what they tried to do because the voice of the fans stopped them doing it, but it plunged all the key issues right to the top of the political agenda, so my first reaction is ‘Thanks very much guys, you’ve achieved more in two weeks than I’ve tried to do in two decades’.”
