MANCHESTER UNITED fans are planning a mass walk-out protest during their match with Wolves amid growing anger and concern with the direction of the club under the Glazer family’s ownership.
Supporters have picked out the February 1 Premier League clash at Old Trafford with Wanderers as the match they will use to make their point that they want the Americans to sell up and get out with the club now 137million in the red.
United chief executive Ed Woodward is also a target and fans directed verbal abuse at him during the bitterly disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Burnley in midweek.
Fans plan their walk-out on 58 minutes to coincide with the date of the Munich air disaster in 1958.
They believe this symbolic date will encourage more supporters to get up and walk out and have the maximum effect.
Fans sang anti-Glazer songs during the Burnley match and also called for Woodward to be sacked as the atmosphere turned toxic.
He is blamed for a series of poor managerial appointments and expensive flop signings since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
It has been claimed that the Glazers have taken around 1billion out of the club in personal dividends since their 2005 takeover.
Brothers Joel and Avram Glazer are co-chairman.
United are next in action in the FA Cup against Tranmere tomorrow before Wednesday’s second leg of the Carabao Cup against neighbours Manchester City.
The Wolves clash is the last league game at Old Trafford until February 23.
Fans’ disillusionment hit rock bottom when the Clarets picked up their first league win at Old Trafford in 58 years on Wednesday.
The stadium was only a quarter full near the end as fans made their protest with their feet.
The late Malcolm Glazer, who family also own the Tampa Bay Buccaneers American Football team, first bought shares in the club in 2003 before taking full control in 2005.
But their ownership has been marked by huge controversy with the Glazers racking up huge debts in order to fund expensive signings.
It is believed up to 275million of debt was secured against the club’s assets, incurring interest payments alone of 62m a year.
Malcolm Glazer died in 2014 at the age of 85 when his two sons assumed full control of Old Trafford.
