THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

The effects of the huge debt on fans and the future

icon moneyman13 May ~ Over the past ten years Manchester United have won five League titles, three League Cups and reached three Champions League finals, winning one. Yet for that decade the club have been owned by the Glazer family, bringing with them huge amounts of debt and mismanagement. The final cost of a protracted buyout was £790 million, with only £272m coming straight from the Glazers – the rest was borrowed and put on the club’s books. Alexander Netherton has dissected the effects of the Glazer reign on Manchester United in great detail for Fusion, looking at the finances, fans and future of the club.
