“I wouldn’t want to…”: Avram Glazer’s comments at Wembley will infuriate every single United fan – report

During the women’s team’s thrilling FA Cup triumph over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Avram Glazer professed his “love” for Manchester United to a supporter.

United won easily, 4-0, to win the club’s first major championship since the women’s squad was established in 2018. The Red Devils ran wild at Wembley, with goals from Ella Toone, Rachel Williams, and Lucia Garcia putting Spurs to the sword.

While his co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, was at Old Trafford for United men’s match versus Arsenal, the American owner was in the nation’s capital.

After attending the semi-final match against Coventry City in April, Glazer, a 63-year-old businessman, was seated in the Royal Box at Wembley for his second visit in as many months. He also attended the FA Cup and Carabao Cup finals last season. His final visit to Old Trafford was in August 2022, when the team lost to Brighton & Hove Albion on opening day.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Glazer told a fan during the game that he “wouldn’t have missed” the historic occasion. This is an important day, and I’m glad to be here. Not that I would have missed it. I adore United. This is something I wouldn’t want to miss,” the American said.

Any rage or incredulity that United supporters may be feeling after reading those statements is understandable since this reporter undoubtedly feels the same way.

It is insulting to the state of disarray they have allowed United to descend into, both on and off the field, that any member of the Glazer family could honestly say they “love” United.

Just hours after the women’s team had defeated Spurs, Erik ten Hag’s squad suffered a devastating 0-1 loss at the hands of Arsenal in front of Ratcliffe. Even though it was an improvement over the utter surrender against Crystal Palace earlier in the week, the performance was nonetheless subpar.

In as much as it is due to an inept manager or underperforming players, United’s incapacity to maintain significant and long-lasting success on the field is a symptom of their utter ownership. Never has the adage “fish rots from the head” been more relevant than it has been at Old Trafford in the last ten years, with Avram Glazer being the main culprit in this degradation.

And to make matters worse, supporters now feel embarrassed about the stadium itself. After years of flimsy investments by the Glazers, Old Trafford is still Old Trafford. The long-standing problem of a leaky roof reared its ugly head as United lost to a rival team that was more organized, ran, and had a better-designed stadium.

The Sir Bobby Charlton Stadium’s roof was unable to withstand an unusually heavy downpour in one focused burst, and massive volumes of water started to pour in, drenching spectators and creating a dangerously humiliating scene.

The Peoples Person is certain that the view from the Royal Box at Wembley was far more enjoyable than the one from the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand at Old Trafford at the end of each game. This is not the first time this has happened, and it is unlikely to be the last. Thus, Avram Glazer’s utterly inappropriate remarks.
