“I support the Glazers!”…Manchester United DF Unexpected Voice, Why?
The Glazers are generally the target of criticism for Manchester United fans or former members.
The Glazers have been stingy on investment since taking over Manchester United in 2005, and have not performed well. In addition, when he announced the sale of Manchester United in November last year, he showed a selfish appearance in favor of his family, not the development of the club. Manchester United fans then staged a protest against the resignation of the owner of the club.
But ‘unexpected voice’ came out. Paul McGrath, who played 203 games as a defender for Manchester United in seven seasons from 1982 to 1989, is the main character.
He ‘supports’ the Glazers through Ireland’s Sunday World. The key was how to deal with the Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr) crisis. At the end of last year, Ronaldo caused a stir by interviewing Manchester United and manager Eric Tenhach, and eventually left Manchester United for Saudi Arabia.
McGrath said: “Of course many Manchester United fans would not have been happy under the ownership of the Glazers. However, the Glazer family fully supported coach Tenhach in the war between Ronaldo and coach Tenhach. I think this part was absolutely right. I support this decision,” he said.
He then said, “Coach Ten Hach said Ronaldo should be on the team. The Glazers accepted this. It must have been a difficult choice for the owner. I had to give up things related to money, including the influence Ronaldo brings, such as the sale of uniforms. He explained, “The decision means that as the owner of the club, he prioritized soccer over profits.”
He also expressed joy at Manchester United’s recent rise. “For the first time since the end of the Alex Ferguson era a decade ago, the board, the manager, the players, the staff and the fans all seem to be enjoying themselves at Old Trafford,” McGrath said.
