Man United Supporters Trust back Fergie but blame Glazers in Rooney row

The influential Manchester United Supporters Trust have backed Sir Alex Ferguson in the ongoing row over Wayne Rooney's future - but blame the Glazers for allowing the club to find itself in such a position.
Ferguson confirmed earlier today that Rooney wants out of Old Trafford, and the MUST issued a statement, saying:
"Like the vast majority of United supporters we are disappointed to hear the news that Rooney may be leaving and we still hold out hope that the situation can be resolved.
"We back Sir Alex's judgement as ever but our concern lies with the owners. They have saddled us with a huge debt and they are taking more and more money out of the club every season and the lack of net investment in the squad since they arrived is clear to all."
The statement also underlined the growing concern among United supporters that they are falling behind newly-affluent neighbours City.
"The question being asked by many fans is does the ambition of the owners match that of Rooney or indeed Manchester United supporters? On the evidence so far it would appear the answer is clearly not.
"The contrast could hardly be starker between the owners at Manchester City who are pumping millions into their club while the Glazers are leaching huge amounts out of ours."
The MUST will hold an anti-Glazers protest march before Manchester United's home game with Tottenham on October 30.
