Knighton 'ignoring naysayers' as Man Utd takeover plans discussed

Carlisle United owner Michael Knighton insists his takeover plans for Manchester United are serious.

Knighton, who attempted to complete a takeover of United in 1989, claimed this week that he has drawn up a fresh bid to buy the club from the Glazer family with the support of a consortium.

After a backlash from skeptical fans, Knighton posted to social media: "Many thanks for ALL the brilliantly kind messages of support, this is really much appreciated.

"I apologise for taking time to tweet back & respond to individuals but the response has been truly massive.

"Ignore the trolls & naysayers, they will always be there, they make me smile."
