Man Utd lose training kit sponsor amid anti-Glazer protests

Manchester United have lost a training kit sponsor.

The Observer says United were meant to replace AON with Myprotein, a Cheshire firm owned by Manchester-based company The Hut Group, as one of their sponsors.

However, Richard Arnold - United's group managing director - announced The Hut Group had pulled out of the contract which was due to start on July 1.

HG have pulled out of the deal due to concerns over the club's attempted boycott of the United owners and their partners.

The Glazers have recently been targeted by United supporters over the club's failed bid to join the now defunct European Super League.

The fans expressed their frustration at the American owners by storming Old Trafford ahead of United's clash with Liverpool.
