Man United news: Fans have 'right to express their opinion' ahead of Norwich protest, says Rangnick

Manchester United fans are expected to hold another protest before their weekend fixture with Norwich City, protesting the club's ownership by the Glazer family.

Manchester United host bottom-of-the-league Norwich City on Saturday afternoon, as the Red Devils look to try and hold on to any hopes of reaching the top four this season.

After losing to fellow relegation candidates Everton last week, the Old Trafford faithful will be hoping to avoid another embarassing scoreline on Saturday after a string of poor results.

But while United are certainly full of on-field problems at the moment, fans are also ready to voice their anger at the off-field situation at the club, with supporters unhappy with the running of the club by the Glazer family.

If a protest does occur, it'll be the latest campaign by United fans after they successfully managed to postpone their fixture against Liverpool back in May last year.

Current interim manager Ralf Rangnick was questioned about his thoughts on a potential protest this weekend, and the German coach insisted fans have the right to express their opinion as long as it is does in a peaceful manner.

"We know that football is a game of passion and emotion," Rangnick said. "I think we can all understand our supporters are disappointed both with where we stand in the table but also the performance which we showed against Everton.

"But I believe our supporters are one of if not the best in England and as long as they protest in a peaceful way and as along as they still support the team in the stadium I think they have the right to express their opinion. I can understand they have been disappointed."

As a result of the protests, United arranged for extra security at their Carrington training ground on Friday, after a group of around 30 supporters congregated with an anti-Glazer banner.

The fan anger comes days after the club announced plans to renovate Old Trafford, with the state of the stadium one of many fan concerns.

But with the Glazer family's reign going on 19 years, it wasn't enough to appease the frustrated fanbase.
