Violent scenes as fans invade Manchester United stadium in protest at US owners – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

There have been violent and chaotic scenes at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium as fans invaded the pitch to protest against the club’s American owners.

It led to one of the Premier League’s biggest games of the season, against Liverpool, being called off.

Outside the ground supporters faced off against the police. Two officers were injured.

The fans accuse the Glazer family who bought the club in 2005 of piling up huge debts. They’re also angry at the attempt of the owners to form and join a new breakaway European Super League.

This isn't violent, the fans need their voice to be heard. I am an Arsenal fan and I completely understand the outrage of the the United fans. Fans are tired of owners not caring about the club the way fans do. Football is religion, you can't be messing with it the way these owners are. I think the FA or FIFA should kick the owners out. They won't because the owners benefit them probably.
