A group of Manchester United supporters have delivered an open letter to the club’s owners, the Glazer family.

It was reportedly delivered to Old Trafford on Monday, though United are yet to respond.
Among the issues raised in the letter are the debt placed on the club since the Glazers took charge in 2005; Ed Woodward’s recent pay rise, notwithstanding “the obvious failure” of his executive vice-chairmanship; and the lack of progress made towards appointing a director of football. The letter can be read in full below:
Obviously, these are all important questions that deserve answers, but it seems unlikely that the “Millions of concerned Manchester United fans” cited in the letter are going to get them any time soon.
