A group of United supporters planned to demonstrate outside Arnold’s house, but the guy himself stopped them at a local pub where they had arranged to meet beforehand. The demonstration was subsequently called off after he fielded questions from the audience, which helped to diffuse the situation.

In videos shared to Twitter, Arnold was heard discussing a variety of topics, including the Glazer family’s ownership and the status of United’s attempts to capture Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, among other things.

Although some participants have expressed discontent with some of the responses, Arnold, who took over from Ed Woodward in February, appears to have gained the respect of the protesters by facing them and answering their questions.

According to one of those present on Twitter, Arnold is ‘far, much better than Woodward and will do a better job.’ They believed he was still ‘covering the Glazers,’ and that he was addressing the problem “like a true politician.”

“He’s basically asking for a fresh start because he’s new to the job.” Another fan stated, “He’s admitting that none of the last 17 years are his fault.”
