Manchester United fans returned to Old Trafford for a game for the first time in 14 months on Tuesday - and made their feelings about the Glazer family clear.

United’s Premier League fixture against Liverpool on May 2 was postponed following furious fan protests, with supporters gaining access to the Old Trafford pitch to vent their anger about the Glazers’ ownership of the club and their controversial European Super League plans.

Supporters were back in the stands on a more positive note on Tuesday though, with 10,000 supporters allowed back in with tickets to see United’s clash against Fulham.

It was the first time in 14 months that United fans have been back at Old Trafford to watch a game, though little of the anger at the Glazers seems to have dissipated since those protests earlier this month.

The socially-distanced crowd was away with green and gold scarves - the colour of United fans’ long-time protest against the Glazers since their arrival in 2005 - while fans had placards reading: “Go - Glazers Out’.

As Bruno Fernandes led United out as captain, hundreds of supporters held the placards aloft, leaving the Glazers under no doubt that as far as match-going fans are concerned - even at a reduced capacity - they want a change in ownership.
