Joel Glazer issues statement on Man United's Super League involvement

The Glazers were the driving force behind the controversial project and Joel has now apologised for the club's role in creating the Super League.

The American has claimed that entire family remains committed to the club.

An official statement from Joel Glazer reads: "Over the past few days, we have all witnessed the great passion which football generates, and the deep loyalty our fans have for this great club. You made very clear your opposition to the European Super League, and we have listened.

"We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right. Although the wounds are raw and I understand that it will take time for the scars to heal, I am personally committed to rebuilding trust with our fans and learning from the message you delivered with such conviction.

"We continue to believe that European football needs to become more sustainable throughout the pyramid for the long-term. However, we fully accept that the Super League was not the right way to go about it. We apologise unreservedly for the unrest caused during these past few days.

"It is important for us to put that right. Manchester United has a rich heritage and we recognise our responsibility to live up to its great traditions and values. We also realise that we need to better communicate with you, our fans, because you will always be at the heart of the club.

"We will be taking the necessary steps to rebuild relationships with other stakeholders across the game, with a view to working together on solutions to the long-term challenges. In closing, I would like to recognise that it is your support which makes this club so great, and we thank you for that."

The Glazers were the driving force behind the European Super League's creation with Joel set to serve as one of the vice-chairmen of the new competition.

The Red Devils pulled out of the controversial tournament on Tuesday, despite the Glazer calling the league 'a new chapter for European football' just last week.
