Manchester United fans place Glazers Out sign at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro
Manchester United supporters have done a great job of spreading awareness of the fanbase’s passionate anti-Glazer stance over the past few weeks.
It even prompted billionaire Elon Musk to joke he could make a bid to buy the club, while potential buyer Sir Jim Ratcliffe has also expressed an interest in the club.
United fans are not getting complacent, continuing to protest at home matches, with marches before games and clear anti-Glazer chants being heard even in the recent clash with Real Sociedad.
Now the message against the unloved Manchester United owners has reached a new height, the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Glazers Out sign at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro
Twitter user @Jayjuni achieved the incredible feat of scaling Mount Kilimanjaro, before placing a Glazers Out sign at it’s 5,895 foot high peak.
We wanted to do our bit to spread the word and ensure the image is seen far and wide.
The Glazers took over Manchester United in 2005 with a deeply unpopular leveraged buyout and have done nothing to win supporters over since.
The owners have plunged United into further debt over the past 17 years, and repeatedly failed to communicate with supporters.
They have also failed to put their own money into the club, and overseen a series of disastrous decisions at executive level, with Ed Woodward left in charge for almost a decade.
The cherry on top is the dividends the Glazer family take out twice a year, almost £11 million a time. They are the only owners in the Premier League to do so.
