Man Utd Legend Slams 'Troublemakers' At Old Trafford Protest

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has criticised the 'idiots' and 'troublemakers' who invaded Old Trafford on Sunday.

Red Devils supporters stormed to Old Trafford ahead of their side's Premier League encounter with fierce rivals Liverpool to protest against the club's American owners, the Glazers.

A few hundred supporters also manage to get on to the pitch, which eventually saw the game being postponed due to safety concerns, which the legendary United goalkeeper did not agree with.

"I don't think the die-hard fans were the ones inside the stadium. I think they are idiots, troublemakers. None of them will remember the good times. Some of them weren't even born when the Glazers took over the club," Schmeichel told CBS Sports.

"The die-hard fans, the true fans, keep voicing your opinions, but keep it at a proper level. Don't be stupid about it. Don't demand something which is unrealistic. Keep up the pressure, keep up the ideas.

"What we've learned from the last two weeks is, if we stand together and we show our opposition to ideas that we don't agree with, as a massive group, it does have an effect. I think football, not Manchester United, is at a crossroads now.

"There is this incredible opportunity now to change direction. Something that I think it has needed for a long, long, long time."
