in thePremier League
. The squad also couldn’t leave their hotel.
When the ESL failed, there were more protests as the Red Devils did not consult with the fans over the sign-up.
Keane, speaking onSky Sports
“It has reached a tipping point for the Manchester United fans. They have had enough. United have got some of the best fans in the world. We have seen today that they are thinking enough is enough with the ownership of the club.”
Gary Neville, who has been against the ESL, argued about the Glazers’ ownership and was backed by the fans.
This is a consequence of the Manchester United owners' actions two weeks ago. There is a general distrust and dislike of the owners, but they weren't protesting two or three weeks ago,”
“All football fans should unite today behind what Manchester United fans have done today because what happened two weeks ago was really dangerous for English football.
"We cannot forget what they did two weeks ago, which was really dangerous for English football. They tried to walk away and create a closed shop league that would've created a famine in this country for every other football club.
"They tried to create a famine two weeks ago in English football, in Dutch football, in French football, all over Europe. Those 15 clubs would've walked away from Europe with all that money and would've destroyed the ethos of the pyramid of relegation and promotion. That's number one and it's unforgivable what they did.
"The Glazer family tried to implement something two weeks ago which would've damaged every single community in this country that's got football at the heart of it - and that's why they're dangerous. They are dangerous to the concept of fair play and equal opportunity in football.
"You can't force someone to sell a football club and the Glazer family have proven before that they are stubborn and resilient, but the time has come now, and they are going to make a fortune out of the club, to put it up for sale.
"There is a danger that the people who buy it won't treat it as well but l think it [selling] is the right thing to do."
