Joel Glazer has moved to reassure Manchester United fans that additional efforts will be made to increase their engagement within the club’s fan base.
The co-owner reached out directly to fans at the recent quarterly meeting of the United Fans Forum – via video link from the USA.
Glazer noted that a number of improvements have already been made since addressing the same concerns at the forum in June. He also promised to invest in Old Trafford and the Carrington training ground.
Joel Glazer said (via Manchester Evening News), “We said a few months ago that it was important that we expand this forum to have a more diverse representation of our fan base – and I think we are making good steps in this direction.
“There is still work to be done. It’s pretty complex, I think everyone will notice as they go deeper. But we overcome these hurdles. We will continue to move forward and hopefully complete this in the not too distant future. ”
Criticism has followed the Glazer family everywhere for a variety of reasons – but most of all, for us, it’s their business model for Manchester United.
Fan anger peaked in April when United were one of 12 clubs attempting to create the now-defunct European Super League (ESL) led by Real Madrid President Florentino Perez.
This put the Glazers as well as other greedy owners under heavy pressure, but not only from supporters. Key characters in the game struck and the scheme was quickly dismantled as it was viewed as an attack on the beautiful game.
Glazer added: “We are very happy with the summer. We can always improve. There’s always more to do. ”
