Manchester United fans were heard chanting "Joel Glazer is gonna die" before their clash against Brentford in the Premier League on Monday night.

Thousands have been marching in the streets prior to the final home game of the season in a turbulent campaign that has been fraught with disappointment. The Glazers are deeply unpopular with the club's fans and supporters have voiced their frustration through the campaign.

Another protest was planned ahead of Monday night's match at Old Trafford in what will be the final home game of the season. A mass walkout is also planned on the 73rd minute.

The idea behind it is that it will be 17 minutes before full-time – or a minute for every year that the Glazers have been in charge at United.

But before the match has even started, vile chants have been heard from the fans. They include loud renditions of "Joel Glazer is gonna die". Manchester United have been contacted for comment.

The Glazer brother has never attended a match at Old Trafford during their ownership of the club. While they have never been popular among the fans, protests have ramped up in light of the failed European Super League last year.

The United chiefs were among the main instigators for the controversial move in football, along with Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham. They have also been blamed for a lack of progress on the pitch.

The Red Devils have failed to truly challenge for the Premier League since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson. They last won a trophy under Jose Mourinho when they landed the Europa League in 2017.

However, even appearing in that competition has represented a major downfall at the club where they would be competing in the Champions League on a yearly basis. But their last displays in that tournament were branded a failure after crashing out at the group stage last year and the first knockout round this campaign.
