The Red Devils director backed the Republican candidate by giving a campaign donation of almost 45,000

Manchester United director Ed Glazer has been revealed as one of many sporting figures who donated to Donald Trump's successful presidential campaign.




The Tampa Bay Buccaneers co-chairman became a non-executive director of United in 2006 following the takeover of the club by his father Malcom Glazer.

Since becoming the biggest shareholders in the Red Devils, the Glazer family have been unpopular with United fans, and news of the donation to the Trump campaign may do little to repair that relationship.

After the Glazers took over United the club was hugely in debt, with some lifelong fans deciding to set up FC United of Manchester in order to continue the club's proud heritage and traditions.

Ed Glazer is the third biggest NFL personality to donate to Trump's presidential bid, giving the Republican candidate 44,614, trailing donations from the owners of the Houston Texans and New York Jets.

The family's input into the Buccaneers has also come in for much criticism, especially in 2014 when they finished the season with just two wins - the worst record of any of the 32 NFL teams.

Strangely, Glazer also gave 4,360 to Hillary Clinton's campaign, who also received support from Liverpool chairman Tom Werner. The 66-year-old, who also is involved with the Boston Red Sox baseball franchise gave a total of 2,175 to back the Democratic candidate.

One of the most notable sporting figures to donate to Clinton was Muhammad Ali, who gave 2,175 before his death in June.

Despite donating thousands to each campaign, Glazer's input is dwarfed by many of the so-called super donors who helped make Trump's run to the White House possible.

New York investment management firm Renaissance Technologies is credited as having given over $15 million, while property firm GH Palmer Associates and the Marcus Foundation both contributed over $2 million.
