Arnold meets fans in pub to prevent Glazers protest
Richard Arnold met a group of Manchester United supporters in his local pub before they were set to protest the Glazers’ ownership of the club outside his house.
As reported by JOE, the fans, in support of The 1958 supporters group, had planned to unfurl banners outside the gates of United CEO Arnold’s home on Saturday demanding that he and the Glazers leave the club. The group arranged to meet in a pub close to Arnold’s Chesire property before the protest began but were surprised when Arnold met them there instead.
Arnold, who had been tipped off to the protest, discussed a number of issues with the supporters including the pursuit of Frenkie de Jong, new manager Erik ten Hag’s other transfer wishes and the Glazers’ ownership. “By the time most of the lads had got there they were ripping into him, saying the Glazers have done f*** all for the last 17 years,” one source at the meeting told JOE.
