- Glazers ‘responsible for our decade of decline’, they insist
The Manchester United Supporters Trust have criticized their side’s performance in the 4-0 defeat by Brentford and laid the blame at the feet of the Glazer family.
HE MUST have branded the result “a disgrace, no, a humiliation” after United conceded four goals in the opening 35 minutes in a dismal display in west London.
The statement called for fans to unite amid a period of instability and claimed that “owners are largely responsible for our decade of decline”.
The Manchester United Supporters Trust has released a statement following the defeat to Brentford
The Red Devils were embarrassed when they lost 4-0 at home to Brentford on Saturday afternoon.
The statement read: “We don’t normally comment on matches, but extraordinary moments call for a different approach…
“What we witnessed tonight is an embarrassment, no, a humiliation, for Manchester United fans. And yet, in many ways, it was no surprise. It looks like the culmination of a long-term direction of travel.
“The owners of the Club MUST be held largely responsible for this new low in our decade of decline. Sir Alex papered over the cracks but since 2013 the consequences for our owners are clear.
“On behalf of Manchester United fans everywhere, we demand urgent and radical change. And as fans, all of us, we must stand together. Fan unity, with a voice directed at the owners and the club, is needed now more than ever.
“Finally, as the fans on the floor showed today, we will always support the shirts. Support the team and defend the club. Our flag is deep red and we will never die.”
The game was over by half-time with United needing to overturn a four-goal deficit at half-time
It was a sad day for Erik ten Hag’s side who returned to Manchester empty-handed after goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo sealed victory for Brentford.
Goalkeeper David de Gea’s volley gave the hosts the opener, while Christian Eriksen was at fault for the second goal on his return to Brentford.
Ten Hag brought on new signing Lisandro Martinez at the break and brought on Raphael Varane as the Dutchman looked to salvage something from an abysmal night.
But Brentford saw out the game in comfort as they claimed a famous 4-0 win that heaps misery on struggling United after losing their first game of the season to Brighton last Sunday.
