MANCHESTER UNITED fans are planning a fresh anti-Glazer protest ahead of Erik ten Hag’s first game in charge this weekend.

Club chiefs had hoped that the appointment of the Dutchman would help to quell supporter unrest that has been growing ever louder in recent seasons.

But their hopes appear to be in vain, with supporters group “The 1958” organising a protest for this Sunday.

According to the Telegraph, The 1958 want fans to congregate at Salford Quays two hours before the 2pm kick-off against Brighton before marching to Old Trafford.

In a rallying call posted to their Twitter account, The 1958 wrote: “The Glazers are unfit and improper owners.”

They then added: “We will always support the club. We will always support the manager. We will always rise up against the current owners and any puppet hierarchy they appoint.

“Our club’s future is our only motivation.

“Some things are worth fighting for.”

The 1958 are said to be hoping that they can see the entrances to the East Stand Megastore and directors’ entrance closed off.

It was disgruntled members of The 1958 that CEO Richard Arnold met with at a pub in June.

In a secretly recorded meeting, Arnold admitted that he was unhappy with the way the club had operated in recent years.

He said: “I don’t think we’ve done well with the money we’ve spent historically.

“We’ve blown through an enormous amount of money.

“Last year was a f***ing nightmare. I was hating every minute of it.”

United’s final three home games of last season were subject to fan protests.

While a behind-closed-doors Premier League clash with Liverpool was postponed in May 2021 after protesting United fans stormed into Old Trafford.

Ten Hag’s first summer in charge has so far been marred by two transfer sagas.

Cristiano Ronaldo only reported for pre-season training last week and is determined to leave United just one year into his return.

The 37-year-old left Old Trafford ten minutes before the end of their 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano after being hooked at half-time, with Man United unimpressed with his conduct.

United have chased Frenkie de Jong all summer, meanwhile, although a deal appears difficult to complete with the start of the season now looming.
