Joel Glazer’s apology went as expected. Unaccepted.
Former Manchester United midfielder Luke Chadwick says that the Glazer family have reached “a point of no return”, in an exclusive interview with Caught Offside.
The quotes come after United fans made their feelings known – not for the first time – against the Glazers.
Fans marched across the pitch in protest, having gained access to the stadium, not long before Manchester United v Liverpool became postponed.
The ESL announcement was the tip of the iceberg, but our fight with the Glazers has been ongoing for 16-years and we’ve never saw them as adequate owners for our football club.
However, doubts remain over whether this will make any difference in the long run.
Luke Chadwick certainly saw Sunday’s protest as significant action from the fans.
“I think a lot’s been made of it and rightly so, it’s huge news,” Chadwick said, “I’ve never known that before, a game being called off because of protests.
“The frustrations been there since 2005 when the Glazers took over, 16 years ago. There was massive protests back then. I think things have moved forward but I don’t feel like they’ve ever really been accepted because of what they were doing and their reasons behind coming into Manchester United and taking it over.
“They’ve not really been seen around the club for years on end. I think the whole Super League situation really boiled things over, the lack of communication with the fans, the players, the management team, nobody knew about it, and I think that’s really drove things over the edge now and it’s a point of no return.”
It’s good to hear former players come out and voice their anti-Glazer opinions, but whether we see change or not remains to be seen.
I certainly hope so.
