Man Utd stroll takes sting out of fan protest against Glazers

M

Manchester United took the sting out of their fans’ latest protest against the Glazer family as they eased to a 3-0 win against Brentford on Monday.

Ahead of a summer of change for troubled United, Ralf Rangnick’s side won for just the second time in seven games to keep the atmosphere from turning toxic at Old Trafford.

Despite winning their last home game of the season, United remain in sixth place in the Premier League with two games left.

Fittingly, it was under grey, rain-filled skies that fans protested against despised owners the Glazers for a third successive home match. 

United fans had been urged by the protesters to leave the stadium with 17 minutes left in the match — one minute for every year the United States-based Glazers have owned the club.

There were more empty seats by the time United embarked on a post-match lap of appreciation, but no overt signs of dissent towards their underachieving stars.

Regardless, there is no doubting the overall level of frustration at another trophyless season for United, who haven’t won the Premier League since 2013 and last lifted a major trophy five years ago.

Aside from a few scathing comments about the club’s direction, Rangnick has done little to jolt United out of their malaise since replacing the sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.

“It’s obvious quite a few players will leave and there is a need for top quality players.

Rangnick was in charge of his last home game as United interim manager before the recently-hired Erik ten Hag arrives from Ajax to start his rebuilding job next season.

Anthony Elanga beat Brentford’s offside trap as he raced onto Diogo Dalot’s pass.

After several listless displays, this was a more energetic effort from United and Juan Mata fired narrowly wide from Ronaldo’s flamboyant pass.

Picking himself up, Ronaldo sent David Raya the wrong way from the spot.

With the United fans’ much-hyped walk-out just seconds away, Varane volleyed the third goal from a corner in the 72nd minute.

It was a rare feelgood moment in a season of strife at Old Trafford.
