Ex-Manchester United player Ashley Young has defended the club’s fans after recent anti-Glazer protests.
The former England international has just won the Serie A title with Inter Milan, but events that took place in Manchester over the weekend were still on his mind.
United fans took over Old Trafford last Sunday to ensure Manchester United v Liverpool would be postponed and it’s believed the fight will continue until the Glazers pack up and leave.
Young was a good club servant and it’s interesting to hear more former players speak out against the owners. Gary Neville has been most vocal through his punditry on Sky Sports.
The former United star makes it clear he disagrees with Graeme Souness’ ridiculous claim that United fans are just unhappy because the team isn’t winning trophies. He’s completely forgotten about the protests in 2010, hasn’t he?
“This is going back years and years with the owners,” Young told Sky Sports.

Time will tell if the Glazers have had enough of United, but they’re still taking dividends out of the club and don’t care about matters on the pitch. They never have – and never will, so long as the cash rolls in.
It certainly sounds like Youngy is on our side.
