Senior Manchester United Players Appear To Blank Avram Glazer In Cup Final Celebrations

Manchester United have taken home their first bit of silverware for the season overcoming Newcastle United 2-0 in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. Casemiro opened the scoring with just over a half hour gone, while Marcus Rashford took advantage of that just a few moments later slotting in a second goal securing the win for United. With the Red Devils also sitting third in the Premier League, fans have been heralding Sunday's win as a sign of greater things to come under manager Erik ten Hag.

However, while the team and manager may be on an upward trajectory, questions over the club's ownership remain. Interestingly, Avram Glazer was seated beside Alex Ferguson at Wembley on Sunday, in a rare public appearance as club owner. The Glazers have been reportedly hoping to sell the club for a reported 6 billion pounds, but bids for the club came in much lower than their asking price leaving the sale in doubt.

Anti-Glazer chants were heard on Sunday in the Wembley terraces and it seems the club's players are equally as unhappy with ownership. Videos have circulated online of both Harry Maguire and David de Gea appearing to blank Avram Glazer after the game on Sunday.


Despite the hostility from the fans and players, manager Erik ten Hag and club legend Alex Ferguson didn't seem as bothered at all. Speaking to reporters after the game Ten Hag was full of praise for the owners even encouraging them to join in the celebrations in the dressing room.


 I think the way that he is here shows you feel that he is committed about the process.

He was really happy, really happy for the club, as an owner. So I was really wanted (him) to be part of it. He was in the dressing room, very good he was there to show his intentions.

What's to come of the sale is hard to know but if Ten Hag's comments are anything to go by, the sale is certainly far from a done deal and United fans may have to wait a bit longer to get the Glazers out. Melissa Reddy of Sky Sports believes that the Glazers may not be ready to part with the club just yet.
