Avram Glazer came under criticism for the European Super League, and some United fans forced their game with Liverpool to be postponed after breaking into the stadium.

And his brother, Joel Glazer, released a statement on behalf of the family: "Over the past few days, we have all witnessed the great passion which football generates, and the deep loyalty our fans have for this great club."

"We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right.

"Although the wounds are raw and I understand that it will take time for the scars to heal, I am personally committed to rebuilding trust with our fans and learning from the message you delivered with such conviction."
