Manchester United take on Coventry in the semi-final of the FA Cup

Avram Glazer and Joel Glazer were photographed in London on Friday before Manchester United’s FA Cup semi-final matchup with Coventry City. It appears that while out for a stroll, they ran into their “old friend” Derek Chisora.

Despite a turbulent season, Erik ten Hag’s team may still move on to the FA Cup final if they defeat their Championship rivals at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

Away from the pitch, Old Trafford has seen a lot of change in the last year. Sir Jim Ratcliff and the club’s owners, the Glazer family, worked out a deal that allowed the petrochemicals tycoon to purchase a £1.3 billion minority stake in the team.

Though they are rarely seen in public, United’s much-maligned proprietors were observed on Friday strolling through London and were captured on camera having a conversation with Chisora on the side of the road.

The New York-born American brothers had time to speak with the professional boxer, and Avram even took a selfie with a United supporter. The twins seemed upbeat and eager for Sunday’s bout.

After then, Chisora shared a picture of himself and Avram on Instagram.

More changes at Old Trafford are probably in store over the summer, when Ratcliffe assumes leadership of the team’s football operations.

On the other hand, the Glazers have already faced backlash for their management of the Red Devils.

According to reports, United’s net football debt—which UEFA defines as loans and transfer fees due less cash reserves—has increased to a record £862 million from £12 million during the American’s 2005 leveraged acquisition.

In the past, supporters have attacked the American owners, with some saying that “they have been running the club into the ground.” This came after the Glazers withdrew £33.6 million in dividends from the team in 2022, despite the fact that they had lost £115.5 million.
