    Thousands of Manchester United fans have refused to leave Old Trafford after the full-time whistle against Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon.

    The Red Devils had to battle back from a two goal deficit – as Forest found the net twice in the opening four minutes – to claim the three points.

    And after the full time whistle, thousands of fans remained inside the stadium to protest against their current ownership – the Glazer family.

    Supporters group The 1958 have been at the forefront of leading protests against the Glazers, organising multiple demonstrations over the owners, with their latest taking place on Saturday.

    United fans didn't leave their seats after the full-time whistle, and they began to chant against the Glazers, as well as some fans producing banners and scarfs.

    The group had instructed fans to move to the 'front and centre of their stand' and be to visible and loud with songs and banners.

    The Glazer family announced they were exploring selling United last season, but there has been little movements in terms of sale since the announcement.

    Sheikh Mohammed bin Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have emerged as the two major candidates who could could purchase the club. However, recent reports suggest the Glazer family are getting cold feet about selling the football club.

    However, the message was clear from United fans on Saturday – with many demanding a "full sale" only.
