MANCHESTER United fans picked the perfect moment to remind the club’s owners that they want them out – but I don’t see the Glazers selling up any time soon.

The United supporters who showed up in their numbers to make their feelings known on the scandalous way their club has been abused by their American owners knew they would get the maximum impact from their actions by targeting the United v Liverpool game.

It is England’s highest-profile football match and the one that will get the most attention worldwide, so getting it called off sent a defiant message to the Glazers in their American hideaway. This was not a protest against the club’s decision to sign up for the European Super League – it was about much more than that and has been at United for a long time.
