Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag calls on fans to ‘fight together’ with the club as uproar against the Glazers’ ownership grows, with protests planned for Monday’s game against Liverpool

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has called on fans to ‘fight together’ with the club amid planned protests for Monday’s game against Liverpool.

United found themselves 4-0 down to Brentford within 35 minutes in their last match, prompting anger against the club’s American owners for perceived mismanagement.

Groups such as the the 1958 and the MUST have called on fans to protest peacefully ahead of the club’s next game, and will have renewed hope of a change in ownership after Britain’s richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe expressed interest in mounting a takeover.

 Speaking ahead of the game, ten Hag said: ‘I can only say the owners want to win and the fans we want them behind the club and I can understand sometimes but I am not that long in the club to see all the backgrounds, we have to fight together and be unified.’

The Red Devils have not yet picked up a point after two Premier League games and are bottom of the table.
