Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begs Man Utd fans to not ruin return with more protests

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has begged Manchester United fans not to ruin their return to Old Trafford on Tuesday with more anti-Glazer protests.

United will welcome 10,000 supporters back into the stadium for the first time in 14 months due to the pandemic, when Fulham are the visitors.

But supporters will return against a backdrop of hatred towards United's American owners, following huge protests against the Glazers at the last three home games.

United's match against Liverpool on May 2 had to be called off when protestors stormed Old Trafford, while further demonstrations took place at the rearranged fixture and the visit of Leicester.

There will be extra police and security personnel at the ground tonight amid fears of more trouble.

Solskjaer has urged fans to get behind the team instead of voicing their discontent at the owners and he said: "We've been waiting for a long, long time to welcome the fans back.

"It's never nice to see a club that's not united, so we're hoping Tuesday is going to be a positive day that we move together and we play a good game.

"You hope that the game against Fulham will not be marred by any violence or over the top things.

"I know the fans. They're the best fans I've had and I've got such a great relationship with them. They know how to support the team, so I don't expect any of the fans coming here making any trouble.

"The mood in any club and the relationship between the team and the fans is vital to what happens on the pitch.
