Manchester United’s Supporters’ Trust chief Duncan Drasdo has hit out at Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, following the American’s backing of the Glazer family.

The American business tycoon told United fans they should be grateful to the Glazers rather than hate them.

However, since taking over the club in 2005, the Glazer family are said to have saddled debt of around $850 million (£530m) on United as well as significantly increasing ticket prices at Old Trafford, and Drasdo has warned Arsenal fans his praise of the Glazers should be ringing alarm bells.

"Backing the Glazers may not be surprising, but considering the debt burden they imposed on United and their lack of passion for the club, it is certainly revealing," Drasdo told reporters.

"If I was an Arsenal fan this would be ringing alarm bells.
