A group of aggrieved Manchester United supporters have sent an open letter to the Glazer family complaining about the running of the club.
The open letter describes Manchester United as ‘a club in decline’ and holds the Glazer family as largely responsible for the club’s relatively poor performances in recent seasons.
The letter asks five questions of the MUFC owners in relation to the running of the club, mostly surrounding the debt that has been placed on the club since 2005 and how much investment is going into the team.
The letter claims that the reported £1 billion of debt taken out against the club since 2005 would take 158 years to be paid off at the current rate.
It also claims that £452 million worth of shares have been raised since going up on the New York Stock Exchange in 2012, yet it is unclear how much of this has been invested back in the club.
The letter also asks under what grounds the Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward earned a 60% pay rise in his six years in the position.
Furthermore, it inquires about the search for a Director of Football, which was first announced by the club almost a year ago.
As of yet, there has been no word of who might take the position and what the exact parameters of the role may be.
The legal methods that the supporters will take against the club’s owners were not specified but they did claim that there were methods available to them that were not available in 2005 and 2010.
The open letter is described as one member of the #GlazersOut movement as a ‘collaborative coming together’ between various supporter groups in an attempt to remove the Glazer family as owners of the club.
