Paul Scholes has criticised Manchester United’s Glazer ownership, and believes there will never be a connection between the American billionaires and the supporters.
United fans protested against the Glazers last weekend and more protests are planned before the Liverpool fixture this weekend amid outrage at the European Super League fiasco.
The Glazers have taken money out of the club since their toxic leveraged takeover in 2005 and Scholes has branded the family ‘greedy’ who use the club as a ‘toy to make money.’
Scholes believes football fans need to ‘stop pining’ for billionaire owners who are only interested in using clubs for their own profit.
United are without a trophy since the 2017 Europa League final success and are hoping to end their four-year wait for silverware with victory in the same competition.
Scholes added that it is ‘absolutely ridiculous’ that fans have not seen the club when a trophy in such a long period, as what is happening on the pitch should be the only concern to supporters.
