Frank McAvennie has blasted the minority of Man United fans who managed to call off the club’s game with Liverpool last weekend.
The former Celtic and West Ham striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, encouraged Man United fans to follow Liverpool’s example.
Sunday’s game between United and Liverpool was called off after some Red Devils fans broke into Old Trafford.
There were also some violent scenes outside the ground and Greater Manchester Police confirmed an officer had sustained a ‘significant slash wound’ to the face.
The protests were aimed at Man United’s owners, the Glazers, after their involvement in the failed European Super League proposals.
McAvennie told the protesters to follow the example of Liverpool and Arsenal fans, who held peaceful protests about the ownership of their respective clubs.
“To get that game stopped is wrong,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“I don’t care what kind of protesters you are. Do what the fans of other clubs did.
“Look at Arsenal fans, Liverpool fans, look what they did, that was great. Don’t get the game stopped.
“It’s a bit much. I get that they are angry but it’s not going to affect these people, they’ve got too much money.
“I just think it’s too much, I’m fuming. People should not get hurt. Two police officers got hit with bottles.
“It’s a protest, why are you throwing things? It’s a minority of course, but it was wrong.”
The game between Manchester United and Liverpool has been rescheduled for May 13.
This means the Red Devils will have to play a demanding schedule of three Premier League games in five days.
