MANCHESTER – Manchester United supporters stormed into the stadium and onto the pitch, delaying Sunday’s game against Liverpool as thousands of supporters gathered outside Old Trafford to demand ownership of the Glazer family sells the club

Long-standing anger at US owners escalated after they were part of failed bid to bring United into European Super League

“Get out of our club,” fans chanted as flares went off “We want the Glazers out”

The family, who also own the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, have refused to engage with fans since buying United in 2005 in a leveraged takeover that charged the debt club

Fans currently cannot attend games due to the pandemic, but they have found a way to enter the stadium They have also climbed viewpoints next to the turnstile entrances

Fans wore green and gold scarves and also set off flares in the colors of the club’s 1878 roster Over 100 fans entered the stadium and some could be seen from the windows waving to the protesters Corner flags were held aloft and a supporter was seen throwing a tripod from the interview area

Mounted police later kicked protesting supporters out of the stadium after glass bottles were thrown in brief clashes Some fans returned to a main road near the stadium with police forming a line to prevent them from returning

If United lose Sunday’s game, Manchester City take the Premier League title United is the record 20-time champion of England, but has not won the trophy since 2013
