Ferguson claims Glazers have always supported him

Ferguson claims Glazers have always supported him

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insisted that Glazers have never hampered any potential transfers, stating the feeling of ‘disaffection’ was in the past and team’s victories on the pitch proved the current owners were doing a great job.

Ferguson said he did not have any troubles with them and had never encountered opposition, adding the owners had always been supportive in financial terms and invested in the team. He said that: ‘The problem for them is they are not publicists. They don’t seek good publicity. They are quite happy to stay in the background and [Roman] Abramovich is the same at Chelsea.’

The Scottish tactician emphasized the owners spent £30 million on the training ground, medical centre, outdoor astro-turf pitches and a new gallery, the site opening scheduled for October.

The Glazers family seized control over United in 2005 and since that moment have been criticized and even despised by the fans. The supporters blame the owners in high level of debt and financial risks that a club faced, also claiming that Glazers prevent the coach from bringing new players to the team.
