The Manchester United Supporters’ Trust has sent an open letter to owner Joel Glazer suggesting further major fan protests if they do not urgently respond to a four-point action plan.
“No-one wants what happened at Old Trafford yesterday to be a regular event,” says the letter, before urging a public response from the Glazer family by the end of the week.
“This is the only way to move this issue on. We strongly suggest you take it,” warns the letter.
Although the letter stresses that MUST “do not condone any acts of violence”, they also say that they “did not personally witness any such acts”.
Greater Manchester Police said two officers were injured, with one attacked by a bottle and requiring emergency hospital treatment.
In an official statement on Monday, football club Manchester United said protesters managed to gain access to the Old Trafford pitch by breaking through security barriers, scaling gates and then forcing open a door.
Separately, the door of a disability access lift was smashed, enabling another group to enter the stands, the club said.
Meanwhile, the date for the game to be replayed is still TBC with 16 May being considered. Police and politicians have condemned fans. And the debate continues to rage about who owns these great sporting and national institutions.
