Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he received a personal apology from the Glazers over Manchester United’s intended participation in the Super League.
United co-chairman Joel Glazer was listed as one of the co-chairmen of the Super League and voiced his support for the breakaway concept in an introductory statement.
The backlash from supporters of most of the six Premier League clubs that planned on joining the Super League was so vehement United withdrew within 48 hours of its launch.
Avram Glazer, the United co-chairman, has twice refused to apologise for his family’s conduct when doorstepped by journalists from the Daily Mirror and Sky News in Palm Beach, Florida.

Joel Glazer issued an open letter to United fans, apologising for his tone-deaf conduct and has vowed to improve communication, having not spoken to supporters directly in 16 years.
However, during United’s Zoom call on Thursday, staff prevented four dedicated national correspondents from asking Solskjaer questions. Italian journalists were invited to engage Solskjaer, even though none had their hands raised on the Zoom call.
Despite United’s efforts to ignore the elephant in the room, a British journalist asked Solskjaer if the Glazers should communicate better.
“I’ve been communicating with the owners,” Solskjaer said. “I’ve got an apology personally. They have apologised to the fans. I know that communication has started between other individuals than me and the fans.
“It’s a difficult position to be in for me, this, I’ve got to focus on the football. I’ve always had a good relationship and they do listen to the fans and I am sure there’ll be better communication coming.”
