Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has released a statement reiterating his commitment to the club amid ongoing calls to sell.
Pressure has mounted on the Glazer family after their involvement in the European Super League breakaway plan with protests causing the recent Premier League clash with Liverpool to be called off.
But Joel Glazer has now reiterated his recent apology to fans and vowed to continue investing in the club and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s playing squad.
He has also committed to improving communication and dialogue, starting by attending a Fans’ Forum at the end of the season.
“We have supported sustained investment in the team over many years, and that will continue this summer,” he said.
“We recognise that we will need to significantly increase investment in Old Trafford and our training complex to ensure that the club’s facilities remain among the best in Europe.”
He said: “I am personally committed to ensuring that we strengthen this relationship in future” whilst also adding “I want to reassure you that my family and I care deeply about Manchester United and feel a profound sense of responsibility to protect and enhance its strength for the long-term, while respecting its values and traditions.”
Glazer pointed out that their “top priority is, and will always be, competing for the most important trophies, playing entertaining football with a team comprised of top-quality recruits and some of the world’s best homegrown talent.
The open letter concluded: “These commitments are a starting point for further dialogue, including all the specific points you raised, rather than final proposals.
“We want to work together to come up with an ambitious package of measures which will transform our relationship with fans and strengthen the club for the long-term.
“In this spirit, we will reach out to members of the forum to schedule a meeting in which I shall participate as soon as possible after the final game of the season.”
