Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer is set to attend a fan's forum on June 4th in an attempt to mend the relationship between the club's owners and fans following mass protests outside Old Trafford last month.

United fans carried out a protest outside the stadium prior to their clash against Liverpool on Sunday, May 2, causing the game to be postponed to Thursday, May 23. The official Manchester United Supporters' Trust demanded a response from the Glazers following the protests, which came in the wake of the controversial European Super League.

Announcing his intention to speak with supporters at next month's forum, Glazer wrote on the official United website: “I'm looking forward to the meeting to hear their views and be part of a constructive discussion. I firmly believe this can open a new era of positive dialogue and cooperation between club and the fans.”

Fans have continued to protest against the Glazers, with the Supporters' Trust calling on the owners to allow fans to buy up "meaningful shareholding" and to have a "meaningful say" on key matters at the club.

"This is our objective, and there will be no let-up until we get there," they said in a response to Glazer earlier this month.

Fans donned gold and green scarves and chanted against the Glazers during Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Fulham at Old Trafford.
