The world’s richest man is making the joke at a time when the club was experiencing a low, having lost their two league games this season.
The Red Devils are bottom of the Premier League after defeats to Brighton (2-1) and Brentford (4-0).
Their fans have been restless, and earlier this week the Manchester United Supporters Trust said it will “demand answers” from those running the club after a “humiliatingly bad” start to the season.
The Erik Ten Hag team are still trying to find their footing this season, and there have been multiple protests against the Glazers’ ownership of the club in recent years
