Ferguson pleas to Man Utd fans as Glazer row unsettles players

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has conceded supporter anger with the Glazer family and the club's debts is unsettling his team. The Times says Ferguson will appeal to Manchester United supporters today to put aside their anger about the Glazer ownership of the club for the benefit of the team.

Dismay over the Americans has reached a peak and Ferguson has come in for personal criticism for not siding with the club's followers.

However, the United manager wants those who have expressed misgivings about the finances and campaigned for the removal of the owners to remain loyal and not allow themselves to become consumed by fears over the club's £716.5 million debts.

Ferguson's plea in his programme notes to preview United's Barclays Premier League match with Hull City at Old Trafford this afternoon came as the club successfully raised £504 million yesterday through a bond issue.
