Man United owner refuses to apologise over Super League

Well, who saw this coming?

The Glazer family don't appear any closer to relaxing their tight-lipped approach to Manchester United supporters in the aftermath of the protests at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The club's widely-despised American owners have refused to engage with United fans since the 2005 leveraged takeover of the club.

Despite the scenes at Old Trafford at the weekend, which saw thousands protest against the Glazers, footage from Sky News shows Avram Glazer blanking a string of questions about United when tracked down by reporter Sally Lockwood in California.

Lockwood asks him if he had anything to say to United fans and if it was time to sell the club. Also presented with the opportunity to offer an apology, he remains silent, eventually getting in a car and driving away.

Manchester United Supporters' Trust (MUST), the organisers of Sunday's protest, have since sent an open letter to Joel Glazer, Avram's brother, outlining four issues which need addressing to make progress. They demanded a public response by Friday.

If Avram's actions are anything to go by, don't hold your breath.
