Manchester United co-owner Avram Glazer has broken his silence on selling Manchester United. The 62-year-old American owner was tracked down by a Sky Sports reporter in Florida following Tuesday's shock announcement of the sale of Manchester United. He was confronted in the street and was asked why it was the right time to sell. A surprised looking Glazer replied "As we announced yesterday, the board went through a process and it has decided it is going to look at different strategic alternatives and that's what we're doing."
On being questioned about the acrimonious departure of star forward Cristiano Ronaldo and his comments that owners don't care about the club, Avram said: " I will tell you about Cristiano Ronaldo, he is a great Manchester United player and I appreciate everything he has done for the club and I wish him the best of luck in the future."
Ronaldo 37 was very critical of the American owners and accused them of not caring for the club. Ronaldo went on air with Piers Morgan to talk about his frustrations at the club, criticizing manager Erik ten Haag and his teammates.
In a statement on Tuesday, it was announced that the board was beginning a process to explore strategic alternatives for the club to enhance future growth. The Raine Group, which oversaw the sale of Roman Abramovich's Chelsea football club to a consortium led by US billionaire Todd Boehly, has been tasked with overseeing the sale of Manchester United.
