There is fresh impetus to anti-Glazer protests that will take place before United play Liverpool
It has given fresh impetus to anti-Glazer protests that will take place before Monday’s game against Liverpool amid tight security around Old Trafford. The same fixture was postponed last year following angry demonstrations.
On Thursday, a fans’ group dedicated to targeting United’s sponsors and damaging the Glazers’ revenue streams wrote to Apollo threatening to tarnish the company’s reputation if it did not walk away from the talks.
The Boycott Movement Against the Glazers, which is behind the #notapennymore campaign that forced The Hut Group to abandon a £200m sponsorship deal with United last year, is drawing attention to links between Apollo’s founder Leon Black and financier Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender who died in jail while awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges.
