The home of Manchester United chief executive David Gill has been attacked.

The Daily Mail says Gill has had his house attacked by fans angry over his support for the Glazer family.

Gill returned from a business trip yesterday to find that his £700,000 detached house in Bowdon had been covered in graffiti. The slogans 'Judas Gill' and 'Glazers Out' had been daubed on walls.

The offending words were last night being removed and it is understood the attack was the result of Gill's comments backing the owners in the wake of the club's financial results last week.
