“Just a reminder”- Manchester United cult hero makes Glazers claim that could ruffle a few feathers

Zlatan Ibrahimovic risks Manchester United fans’ wrath over his comment about the Glazers

Former Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a very controversial statement involving the Glazers during his interview with Piers Morgan.

The 42-year-old former superstar appeared in 53 games for the Red Devils while contributing to 29 goals and 10 assists across all competitions.

The Swedish hero helped United win the Community Shield, League Cup, and Europa League during his two-season-long stint at Old Trafford. While it might have been too short, he still put together a memorable highlights reel.

Ibrahimovic said (h/t Piers Morgan Uncensored) that the Glazers have invested in United even though fans are protesting against them. He said:

“I think now in Man United, I don’t know, there are some kind of demonstrations about the owners to sell it and that but just a reminder, the owners are investing”

The Glazers took over the Red Devils in 2005 after securing 98% of the shares through a leveraged buyout. United fans immediately protested against The Glazers family after the news broke.

The Red Devils fans have a very contentious relationship with the ownership and they dream of seeing the Glazers out.

The Old Trafford loyalists have accused the United owners of extracting a significant amount of funds from the club.

However, Ibrahimovic’s problematic statement holds some weight as the Red Devils have spent a lot over the last decade. According to the Daily Mail report, United have spent £1.19bn more than they have recouped from players’ sales in the last decade.

The staggering figure also sums up the poor planning that goes behind the scene as United have starved for success.

We think Ibrahimovic has forgotten about the criticism he levied against United management for charging £1 for a fruit juice. The Swede condemned United for having a “small mentality” yet he questions the fans for putting up with a cheap regime.
