The Manchester United Supporters’ Trust have released a rare post-match statement after Erik ten Hag’s side suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Brentford on Saturday.

In a statement published on their website, MUST described the club’s loss to Brentford as a “humiliation”:

“What we witnessed tonight is a shame, no, a humiliation, for Manchester United fans.

“And yet, in many ways, it wasn’t a surprise. It feels like the culmination of a long-term direction of travel.

While the Ten Hag side have been unable to find their feet so far this season following back-to-back Premier League losses, the Trust laid the blame for the club’s decline squarely on the presiding Glazer family.

“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 of our owners have been clearly seen.

The group was initially formed in 1998 to protest Ruport Mudoch’s takeover of the club, it has since become the largest such group in the UK.

In the years since the purchase of United by the Glazer family in 2005, MUST has focused its attention on seeking a more democratic model of fan participation in the management of the club, advocating for United to adopt the 50+ model 1 seen in the Bundesliga where clubs must retain at least 50% plus one share of their voting rights.

In their statement, MUST further demanded that “urgent and radical” changes be made to the club:

“On behalf of Manchester United fans everywhere, we demand urgent and radical change. And we, as fans, all of us, must stand together. Fan unity, with one voice directed at the owners and the club, is more necessary than ever right now.”

FULL STATEMENT OF THE MANCHESTER UNITED SUPPORTERS’ TRUST

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.

It MUST make the owners of the Club largely responsible for this new low in our decade of decline. Sir Alex papered over the cracks, but since 2013 the consequences of our owners are clear.

On behalf of Manchester United fans everywhere, we demand urgent and radical change. And we, as fans, all of us, have to stick together. The unity of the fans, with one voice addressed to 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 jerseys. Support the team and defend the club. Our flag is deep red and we will never die.
