Manchester United ban photographers for covering anti-Glazer protests
Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Action Images are understood to have had passes withheld for the club’s final home game of the season against Fulham on Tuesday.
However, the club are unhappy that the two did not have proper accreditation to cover the protests and ended up doing so unethically.
The action seems to have infuriated the photographers’ colleagues, who feel that there was public interest in the protest which was happening against the Glazers.
It has to be noted that our original fixture against Liverpool was rescheduled because of the protests. Fans stormed onto the Old Trafford pitch, forcing the officials to postpone the game.
United will revisit their position with AFP and Action Images this summer, but the report claims that regular sports photographers will be allowed to return by the start of next campaign.
According to Daily Mail, one of the observers commented on the action taken against the photographers.
“These photographs were taken by news photographers and published because it was a matter of exceptional public interest, both nationally and internationally.”
Given that the protests have drawn much traction from all over the world, there is no reason why the photographers shouldn’t have covered this. Irrespective of what the report claims, there seems to be more to this than what’s in front of us.
- Glazers prepared to go big after Harry Kane to please Manchester United fans
- Manchester United could do an internal transfer to replace Ed Woodward
- Manchester United urged to replace Paul Pogba with Jack Grealish
If the Glazers are really keen about keeping up a good reputation, then they should rather try and work in the fans’ interests rather than shutting people up.
