This Sunday there was a scene that will remain forever in the history of Manchester United, at Old Trafford. A group of fans invaded the field while protesting the Glazer family before the game against Liverpool. For this reason, the game that was first delayed was finally suspended and will be rescheduled. It was not an ordinary claim. The fans bypassed the security controls of the venue and infiltrated the colossus English stadium. Smoke flares, flags and a total mobilization against the owners of the club.

It is the second and largest protest by United fans in recent weeks as they push to change the ownership structure at the institution. Fans also told outgoing CEO Ed Woodward on Friday that they were "disgusted, embarrassed and angry" about the club's direction.

The Red Devils were one of the 12 founding members of a European Super League, but finally reversed their situation two days later. The very moment they withdrew from the tournament, it was announced that Woodward would be leaving his job. A large number of United supporters have long wanted the Glazer family to leave their club, but protests have accelerated since the proposals were announced.

The thoughts of Ole Solkjaer, the Manchester United coach

Before Sunday's game, the Manchester United manager stressed the importance of listening to the opinions of the fans. He also added:"It's important that the opinion of the fans is heard and that we communicate better. My job is to focus on football and that we have the best possible team. As I said before, they have supported me, I have had great support from the club and the owners and I am sure that I will once again have the support to go one step further".
