Reports claim that Manchester United fans have paid a plane to fly a protest banner against the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. The banner is not only for Woodward. It is also aimed to criticize the club’s owners, Joel and Avram Glazer.
The banner will read, “ED OUT — LUHG.” LUHG stands for Love United Hate Glazer. It will be flown during Manchester United’s game against Burnley over the latter’s home ground Turf Moor. The game will take place on September 2.
Manchester United fans wanted to fly the banner during the club’s match against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday but issues regarding flying a banner during the match’s time led that plan to be scrubbed.
This isn’t the first time that United fans will be flying a protest banner during a game. During the 2013-14 season, a protest banner aimed at then manager David Moyes was flown during a match against Aston Villa at Old Trafford. That banner read,”Wrong One — Moyes out”. However, Manchester United won the match 4-1 thanks to a brace from Wayne Rooney and goals from Juan Mata and Javier Hernandez.
The Red Devils are currently placed 9th in the Premier League. They will be hoping to rebound from the Brighton defeat with a strong showing against Spurs on Monday.
