Man City fans also plan to recreate the passionate cheer ever in Poznan, Poland in 2010 (the match between Man City and Lech Poznan in the Europa League). But the difference is that instead of cheering, fans will turn away when the traditional Champions League song plays.

Parker added: “We have no reason to stop supporting the club. We see the Financial Equity law as a way for elite clubs to protect themselves. They see Man City as a threat. They don’t want to see teams like Man City. We are like a working-class family in a labor-stricken area, winning the lottery and moving to a rich house, but then we are not welcome. “

UEFA banned Man City from attending every European tournament in the next two seasons because of a “serious violation” of the Financial Equity law, announced Monday night.

Even the directors of this club were old then he has publicly stated that he was horrified at the time the Glazers family made an offer to buy Man Utd for $ 1,245 billion. Man Utd’s management at the time commented that the offer was “too aggressive” and “likely to harm the club”. 

But ultimately the determination of the Glazers has changed the views within the former management of Man Utd. The deal was completed despite Deloitte & Touche’s economic experts, who were hired to audit the club in the case, arguing that the Glazers’ acquisition of Man Utd had no financial significance.

“In the end, the Glazers defeated their calculations. Deloitte was not only wrong, but also the wrong kilometers, ”a source close to the Man Utd acquisition deal that day said.

After Man Utd returned to the hands of the Americans, the original fare increased sharply. Tickets for the entire season at the east side of Old Trafford Stadium have increased by nearly 30%, from $ 723 to $ 1048, from 2006 to 2009. Tickets to the east of Old Trafford Stadium for the entire current season are up to 1111 dollars.

Debts also forced Man Utd to find a way to refinance to reduce interest rates. A bond issue of up to $ 788 million was made in January 2010, making fans more worried about the club’s financial structure.

Man Utd’s financial situation at that time was at a warning level, even the management had to consider the plan to sell off United’s Carrington training center and then rent it again. Man Utd debt peaked in the summer of 2010, nearly $ 1,226 billion. By the end of last year, the debt had dropped to $ 600 million.

The protests were largely silent, but the Glazers’ image in front of the crowd of Man Utd fans was still negative. It is confirmed that billionaire Malcolm Glazer, who died in May 2014, has never set foot in Old Trafford after his family acquired Man Utd.

Even after Louis van Gaal was paid £ 157.7 million to buy a number of players last summer, including an English football record of £ 59.7 million for Angel Di Maria. , then the total net spending over the last decade of Man Utd is only 274.6 million pounds, still far below Chelsea’s £ 370.7 million.

Many people still insist that the spending of former manager Alex Ferguson was greatly restricted under the Glazers, although the Scottish legend has denied it a few times.

The Glazers appear to be willing to play on the transfer floor, with lots of blockbuster deals, the most recent being a $ 99 million record deal with Angel Di Maria (center).

Man Utd did not owe any debt until 2005. The situation completely changed when the Glazers had to borrow hundreds of millions of pounds to have enough money to take over the Old Trafford club. Most of the money the Glazers father and son used to acquire Man Utd comes from loans everywhere, and is mainly secured by the club’s own property value.
