Glazer issued a message to Red Devils supporters in a lengthy statement on Thursday, promising to work on improving the relationship with supporters and stressing that significant investment will be made across the board in future, especially with regards to player recruitment and club facilities.
“Thank you for your letter dated April 30, sent in your capacity as representatives of Manchester United fans,” he wrote in a message to members of the club’s Fans’ Forum, published on United’s official website.
“I read the contents closely and your love and passion for the club came across very clearly. I want to salute your service to the Fans’ Forum, which I know is a vital channel for consultation between the club and our fans.
“As I recently stated publicly, I am personally committed to ensuring that we strengthen this relationship in future.
“I was personally humbled by parts of your letter, as you explained so clearly why our initial support for the European Super League left you feeling angry and let down. I would like to reiterate my sincere apology for the mistakes that were made.
“In particular, I want to acknowledge the need for change, with deeper consultation with you as our main fan representative body across a range of important issues, including the competitions we play in.
“We also recognise the importance of fan and football interests being embedded in key decision-making processes at every level of the club, and we are open to constructive discussions on how to reinforce that principle.
“In addition, I want to reassure you that my family and I care deeply about Manchester United and feel a profound sense of responsibility to protect and enhance its strength for the long-term, while respecting its values and traditions.
“Our top priority is, and will always be, competing for the most important trophies, playing entertaining football with a team comprised of top-quality recruits and some of the world’s best homegrown talent. Under Ole, we feel we are absolutely on the right track.
“Success on the field must be underpinned by solid foundations off it. We have supported sustained investment in the team over many years, and that will continue this summer.
“These commitments are a starting point for further dialogue, including all the specific points you raised, rather than final proposals. We want to work together to come up with an ambitious package of measures which will transform our relationship with fans and strengthen the club for the long-term.
“In this spirit, we will reach out to members of the forum to schedule a meeting in which I shall participate as soon as possible after the final game of the season.
“Thank you again for your work for the forum and your passion for the club. I look forward to meeting you and in the meantime let’s look forward to a successful end to the season.”
