Roy Keane reacts to Manchester United fan protests: Enough is enough
Roy Keane has backed the protests from Manchester United fans at Old Trafford on Sunday, saying that they have reached the end of their tethers and ‘enough is enough’ for the owners of the club.
Hundreds of fans protested outside Old Trafford, with a smaller number getting into the stadium and taking to the pitch.
The Premier League match against Liverpool was due to kick-off at 4.30pm but was delayed as a result of the protest which was against the Glazer family’s ownership of Manchester United.
The Glazers’ support of the failed European Super League venture has sparked the anger of Manchester United fans and former Red Devils captain Keane can completely understand why they are upset.
‘I think it’s come to a tipping point for the United fans,’ Keane said on Sky Sports.
‘It was peaceful, I think they threw one or two bottles and a couple of flares, I think that was towards Jamie [Carragher] to be fair! I think they’ve had enough, enough is enough for these United fans.
‘United have got some of the best fans in the world, a huge club. We’ve seen today that it’s coming to an end, they’re thinking enough is enough with the ownership of the club with the stuff over the last few weeks.
‘There’s stuff with the Super League, not being able to support the club here. Enough is enough now and the United fans want the Glazers out.’
Another Manchester United legend Gary Neville backed the protesters, and said the whole of English football should do the same.
‘I think all football fans should unite today behind what Manchester United fans have done because honestly what [the Glazers] did two weeks ago was really dangerous for English football – we must not forget that,’ said Neville of the European Super League move.
‘‘They tried to walk away and create a closed-shop league that would have basically created a famine – a famine – in this country for every other football club. They tried to create a famine in English football, in Dutch football, in German football, in French football, all over Europe.
‘Those 15 clubs would have walked away from their leagues with that money and basically destroyed the ethos of the pyramid of relegation and promotion in English football. So that’s number one: it’s unforgivable what they did as a family two weeks ago.’
