Harry Maguire among Manchester United quartet unhappy at not being allowed to talk to protestors
According to Twitter via James Cooper (h/t The Express), four Manchester United stars namely Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic are unhappy at not being permitted to talk to protesting fans on Sunday.
United supporters came out in force in the lead-up to our Premier League clash against Liverpool. Fans even invaded the Old Trafford turf, raising serious concerns about security.
This saw the match get postponed. The police are now investigating after an officer was injured during the incident.
It has now been claimed that United players pleaded with staff at the hotel to be allowed to talk to the protesting fans. However, it was to no avail.
The revelation comes from a fan who spoke to Sky Sports reporter James Cooper. Present during the protest, this fan (@mufcwesleyy) went on to post this news on Twitter.
United players were ultimately kept inside amidst fears for their safety. Given that the protests were against the Glazers, it is debatable if anyone would even have tried to harm the Red Devils stars.
It was the case last week when fans broke into the club’s Carrington training base. Fans caused no damage to man or property and left after talking to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Nemanja Matic.
Whether the players could have succeeded in dispersing the crowd yesterday is debatable. However, the message to the Glazers was loud and clear that they are not welcome at Old Trafford anymore.
