DISGRACE! Sir Matt and family being shunted out of Man Utd

The family of Sir Matt Busby are being frozen out at Manchester United.

The Sun says fans who revere ex-manager Sir Matt and still chant his name 22 years after his death will be furious to discover a gold name plaque on his seat has also been removed.

A source said: “When Sir Alex Ferguson was here he was keen to make Sir Matt's son, daughter and seven granddaughters part of modern-day United.

“But in recent years the Busby legacy seems to have faded.

"The powers that be said it's time the club 'moved on' and it has started with the removal of the tickets in the directors' box for four family members."

The source added: “It hasn't gone down well. They called the family about the plaque and said 'We can stick it in the post if you want?'

“United play on being the family club with all this history but this kind of treatment is callous."
