Manchester United could scrap pre-season friendlies plan with Liverpool over protest fears

According to a report, Manchester United were discussing playing two potential friendly games in late duly or early August ahead of the 2021-21 football season.

A game believed to be in planning was a friendly between Manchester United v Liverpool – not that one of them could exist. The word ‘friendly’ would need to be edited out for that one.

But after witnessing two anti-Glazer protests in recent weeks, United could end up scrapping the idea, as per The Times.

A July 29 date and another day in early August had been noted.

I really don’t think they need to worry too much about friendlies. When the fans set out to stop a game from taking place, the aim is to hit the Glazers pocket. Think big: Premier League and the Champions League. Not some friendly.

United’s initial game against Liverpool was postponed after fans broke into Old Trafford and onto the pitch, as well as gathering outside the Lowry Hotel to block players from leaving for the game.

There are whispers that the team could be heading to Malta for pre-season preparations this summer.
