Alan Shearer, a legend at Newcastle United, has said that Manchester United’s struggles on the field this season are the fault of the Glazer family.
Man United’s 2023-24 season has gotten off to a shaky start.
After eight games in the Premier League, Manchester United sits in last place, having lost half of their contests.
Two of Erik ten Hag’s UEFA Champions League games have been lost, to Bayern Munich and Galatasaray.
When asked about Man United’s struggles, Shearer said on The Rest Is Football podcast, “What is happening at the very top [the Glazer family] of the football club, inevitably at some stage it always filters its way down onto the pitch.”
People will claim it shouldn’t happen, that what occurs in the boardroom has nothing to do with the players, but it does. It does, I know it.
Discontent among the crowd is a direct result of the club’s owners, and it shows on the field. Until it shifts, I don’t see a major improvement.
