Man United owner Avram Glazer refuses to apologize for European Super League plot as Sky News confronts him in Florida |  UK News


An American family member who owns Manchester United has refused to apologize to fans for the disastrous attempt to form a breakaway European Super League.

Sky News US correspondent Sally Lockwood met Avram Glazer in Florida and offered him the opportunity to address fan concerns, saying, “This is an opportunity for you – an apology maybe?”

Mr Glazer was then asked if it was time for his family to sell the club and if United fans were “just customers for you”.

He was also asked if he had something to say to the supporters.

But, after doing some shopping, Mr. Glazer, in sunglasses, refused to sign up and left without saying anything.

Fans protested outside United Stadium, Old Trafford, on Sunday, demanding that the glaziers give way to new owners.

There has been growing anger among supporters since Manchester United joined 11 other clubs by signing up for a European Super League last month.

There has always been opposition to Manchester United ownership by the Glazer family since they bought the club 16 years ago, but the relationship now looks toxic.

The billionaire Palm Beach enclave feels far from Manchester.

Multi-million pound mansions can be found on palm-fringed roads. This exclusive island is where Donald Trump now lives in his private club, Mar-a-Lago.

Avram Glazer seems to lead a rather private and secluded lifestyle, but fans are now demanding engagement and dialogue with their billionaire owners.
