Manchester United fans on social media have an incredible Glazer-related theory about Mike Phelan’s new Twitter profile picture.
Phelan, who returned to Old Trafford as first-team coach in 2018 before being appointed assistant manager a year later, updated his online avatar on Tuesday morning.
His new picture shows him laid back on his chair looking blankly into the sky after Edinson Cavani’s opening goal was ruled out against Tottenham last month.
The hilarious image was enjoyed by supporters around the world at the time of the match, and now Phelan has adopted it as his new Twitter profile picture too.
Remarkably, some United fans on social media believe Phelan’s decision to change his picture is related to Sunday’s anti-Glazer protests outside Old Trafford.
One Red Devils supporter wrote: “People here missing the point of this post.
“It’s not a post in support of the Glazer protest, it’s the frustrating of the game being postponed, yobs breaking into OT causing damage, Covid protocols breached, staff hiding, and all the hard work of preparation down the drain.”
“Don’t be angry mike the protest wasn’t aimed at u or the players,” was the view of someone else.
Others took a different view, with one supporter saying: “Mike feeling our pain,” while another added, “That's how we all feel Mike ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”
United’s match with Liverpool was postponed following the protests which saw some supporters make their way inside Old Trafford.
Six police officers were injured in the demonstration, while one officer appeared to aim several punches at a United fan laying on the ground.
No date has yet been set for the rearranged match, with both sides facing a hectic end to the campaign before the season concludes on May 23rd.
