Manchester United fans have been warned to expect the Glazer family to respond stubbornly to their recent protests over their ownership of the club.

The Premier League match against Liverpool at Old Trafford was postponed on Sunday after United fans gathered for what was initially a peaceful protest.

(Arsenal owner) Stan Kroenke picked up the Rams (NFL team) and moved them (from St Louis to Los Angeles) and nobody can tell you you can’t.

“One thing we know from history with American involvement in football clubs - and we’ve seen it at Arsenal - they do stand their ground, they are pretty stubborn,” he told the PA news agency.

That’s just not the English model and that’s been the cause of the friction over the last few weeks.” The Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) has urged the Glazers to adopt a four-point plan, which includes the immediate appointment of independent directors to the board “whose sole purpose is to protect the interest of the club as a football club, not its shareholders”.

Supporters have since written to co-chairman Joel Glazer to warn of continued lawful protests if steps are not taken to give them a louder voice and a greater say in how the club are run.

But Dr Dan Plumley of the Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam University believes American owners have a history of being thick-skinned, and have been prepared to upset entire states in the past.
