Avram Glazer refuses to apologise again as Man Utd fans protest over ownership

Avram Glazer has refused the chance to apologise to Manchester United supporters as the furore continues over the club’s ownership.

Sunday’s Premier League clash against Liverpool was postponed after hundreds of fans made their feelings known outside Old Trafford.

A number made their way into the stadium, to loudly protest against the direction of the club under the Americans.

The Glazer family have been hugely unpopular amongst United fans for a number of years, with net debt increasing to more than £450million as per the latest accounts.

However, the latest attempt to include United in the now disbanded European Super League has put their position under even more scrutiny.

Joel Glazer was forced into a grovelling apology, but Avram refused to follow his lead for the second time in a matter of weeks.

Mirror Sport tracked down the Man United co-owner and asked him: “Are you now going to sell the club Mr Glazer, as it’s clear you have no understanding of your club’s supporters or British fans?”

Only to offer a paltry “no comment” in response.

Sky News have now done the same, asking Avram a number of questions after confronting him in Florida.

He was initially asked: "This an opportunity for you – an apology perhaps?"

An opportunity he refused to take up, before the reporter asked if United fans were "just customers to you".

United legend Gary Neville, who was a vocal critic of the ESL has urged the Glazers to sell up, suggesting they “have no place in Manchester anymore”.
