Man Utd’s biggest fans group MUST urges protesters not to attack fans attending Fulham clash

MANCHESTER UNITED’S biggest fans’ group has called on protesters not to attack their own tonight.

There will be 10,000 supporters in Old Trafford when they play Fulham in the club’s first Premier League game with crowds since the latest lockdown.

But more are expected to gather outside the stadium amid rising anger at the owners, the Glazers.

Some fans feel they should stop bankrolling the controversial Americans by buying tickets and merchandise.

A Manchester United Supporters Trust statement read: “Gather on Sir Matt Busby Way from 4pm.

“Respect the decision of fans who want to attend the match. There should be no confrontation.

"Let’s stay United. Let’s make our voices heard inside and outside the stadium.

“We have confirmation from the club there will be no restrictions on you singing in the ground.”

United fans are calling for 51 per cent of the club to become fan-owned, like teams in Germany.

MUST added: “On the 51st minute, make your voices heard and twirl your scarf.

"The club have informed us they respect the right for peaceful protest. Keep it peaceful.

“Take your green and gold scarf if you’re going in the ground.”

There will be a huge police presence and a large number of stewards for the game.

United have given fans allotted times to get into the ground to minimise queueing.

There will be security checkpoints before the turnstiles and anyone aged over-16 must have photo ID matching the name on the ticket.

Protesters forced the match against Liverpool to be cancelled earlier this month after breaking into Old Trafford and laying siege to the team hotel.

United’s chief operating officer Collette Roche warned: “We remind everyone that inconsiderate, reckless or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.

“Club sanctions will apply for the use of flares within the stadium and any pitch incursions or vandalism will result in criminal prosecution.”

United’s Europa League final opponents Villarreal will have an extra day’s rest before the May 26 showdown in Gdansk.

Spain’s LaLiga has confirmed it will end the day before the Premier League finale.
