PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former Liverpool centre-back Jamie Carragher has applauded Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold for holding a face-to-face discussion with a group of United supporters at a Cheshire pub on Saturday. The fans had planned to stage a protest outside the 51-year-old's home but Arnold was tipped off by his local pub's landlord and subsequently made his way to the boozer to meet them. It was there where he held a frank discussion with them, with covertly recorded video footage of the meeting later being uploaded to social media. Arnold picked up the baton from former United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward back in February and is now tasked with the challenge of trying to make United great again, working alongside football director John Murtough and new manager Erik ten Hag. The protest was planned by supporters to increase pressure on the Glazer family to sell their stake in the club.
