Knighton stated in an interview with Man Utd The Religion: “MU is in trouble, and we all know why. Everyone understands that we require a new owner and why. That is my ambition. I’m still talking to people, and I have good commitments and finances.”

Michael Knighton, the British billionaire with a fortune of $7 billion USD, has reiterated his desire to take over MU from the American Glazer family: “We must get rid of the current owners because time is running out. And after 17 years of disappointment, it’s time for them to go.”

“They must stop taking large dividends from the club. We must stop paying these massive debts. It’s time for them to get rid of this team.”

When Manchester United hosts Brighton at Old Trafford on the first day of the Premier League season 2022/23, the Red Devils are expected to win to get off to a good start under new coach Erik Ten Hag.

However, things did not go as planned for the Red Devils, who were defeated 1-2 by “Seagull.” Pascal Gross scored twice to help teachers and coach Graham Potter win all three points at Old Trafford.

According to a source from The Sun site quoted by The Mirror, instead of scolding and using harsh words with Man United players, the Dutch captain took a gentle approach, calling on everyone to quickly forget the defeat and focus on the upcoming matches.

Coach Erik Ten Hag’s soft move surprised fans because he was known as a strict strategist, and fans expected the former Ajax strategist to “dry the hair” of the players on the training ground. Finally, the manager of Manchester United took a decision that went against popular opinion.
