Owners of Manchester United, the Glazer family, have put the club up for sale, and that is welcome development for United fans.
The Red Devils icon Roy Keane has spoken about the news that emerged earlier this week, after the Glazers released an official statement on the club website stating they were prepared to sell the club.
Keane, who was captain of United shortly before the Glazer ownership was made official in 2005, has always been critical of how the club has been run over the past decade.
Speaking on ITV, Keane stated: “That’s good news for United fans, again, the last few years they’ve wanted owners out, there’s been no relationship, they [the Glazers] are business people so it’s good news for the fans.”
Arsenal legend Ian Wright added: “I’m pleased because the fans have not stopped from the time they’ve been there, in respect to the protests.
“If that does happen, you’re thinking will a club of that size have fan involvement just to let them know what’s going on.
“The fans have been brilliant, hopefully it can happen for the fans because they’ve wanted it from day one and it might happen, fingers crossed for the United fans.”
