Manchester United Supporters Trust have released as a statement this evening following their 4-0 defeat to Brentford.

The statement calls for fans to unite amid a period of instability and claim that ‘the owners are primarily responsible for our decade of decline’.  

Manchester United Supporters Trust have released as a statement after their loss to Brentford

 The Red Devils were embarrassed as they lost 4-0 away to Brentford on Saturday afternoon

The letter read: ‘We don’t normally comment on matches but extraordinary times call for a different approach…

‘What we have witnessed tonight is an embarrassment – no, a humiliation – for Manchester United fans. And yet in many ways it was not a surprise. It feels like the culmination of a long-term direction of travel.

‘MUST hold the owners of the Club primarily responsible for this new low in our decade of decline. Sir Alex papered over the cracks, but since 2013 the consequences of our owners has been plain to see.

‘On behalf of Manchester United fans everywhere, we demand urgent and radical change. And we as fans – all of us – need to stick together. Fans unity, with one voice aimed at the owners and the club, is needed more than ever right now.

‘Finally, as the fans in the ground today showed, we will always support the shirts. Support the team, and defend the club. Our flag is deepest red, and we will never die.’

The game was over by half-time with United needing to overturn a four goal deficit in one half

It was a dismal day for Erik ten Hag’s side who returned to Manchester with nothing after goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo secured Brentford’s win.

In particular, David de Gea and Christian Eriksen both contributed individual mistakes that led to their 4-0 deficit at half-time.

Ten Hag hooked new signing Lisandro Martinez at the break, bringing on Raphael Varane as the Dutchman looked to salvage something from the humiliating defeat. 

But Brentford comfortably saw the game out as they claimed a famous 4-0 win that heaps misery on crisis-ridden United after they lost their opening game of the season to Brighton last Sunday.
