Man Utd fans return to Old Trafford with green & gold scarves as supporters plan 51st-minute anti-Glazer protest


MANCHESTER UNITED fans revved up their anti-Glazer protests by returning inside Old Trafford for a special 51st-minute protest in green and gold scarves.

Having already forced one match to be rearranged when they got inside the ground, 10,000 legitimately were back at Old Trafford for Tuesday’s home clash with Fulham.

And despite being buoyed by a half-time lead earned by Edinson Cavani’s brilliant goal, Red Devils’ fans rammed home their objections to United owners the Glazers.

Many want fans to own 51% of the club – with a return to values as shown by United’s original colours of green and gold

More supporters gathered outside the ground, with some groups suggesting they should stop buying club merchandise to hit the controversial Americans in the pocket.

Before the match, a United Supporters Trust statement read: “Gather on Sir Matt Busby Way from 4pm.

“Respect the decision of fans who want to attend the match. There should be no confrontation.

“Let’s stay United. Let’s make our voices heard inside and outside the stadium.

“We have confirmation from the club there will be no restrictions on you singing in the ground.”

United fans are calling for 51 per cent of the club to become fan-owned, like teams in Germany.

MUST added: “On the 51st minute, make your voices heard and twirl your scarf.

“The club have informed us they respect the right for peaceful protest. Keep it peaceful.

“Take your green and gold scarf if you’re going in the ground.”

There was once more a huge police presence, with United having given fans allotted times to get into the ground to minimise queueing.

Security checkpoints were all along the turnstiles and anyone aged over-16 needed photo ID matching the name on the ticket.
