Manchester United have been forced into changing their Twitter bio following furious backlash from their fans.

The Red Devils were humiliatingly thumped 4-1 by fierce rivals Manchester City at the weekend and the club have gone on to endure further embarrassment since.

Following the heavy defeat, fans were quick to notice the club's Twitter bio was being used to promote a link to United's home kit at a discounted price.

In contrast, City, Liverpool and Chelsea's accounts all boasted about their successes, leading to United's own fans labelling the club a "shambles".

United's original bio read: "The home of Manchester United. Get 35 per cent off home kit and more on United Direct."

In retaliation one fan posted on social media: "The Twitter bios of the clubs paint a very clear picture of what they are focused on.

"For City, Liverpool, and Chelsea it’s about winning trophies. For Manchester United it’s about selling more shirts.

"The club is a mess from top to bottom. #GlazersOut #MUFC #MCFC #LFC #CFC #PL."

One fan's response read: "The Twitter bios of Manchester United compared to their rivals tells you everything that is wrong with this club."

A different supporter took aim at the club's controversial owners, stating: "Excellent observation. Unfortunately I am not surprised. We are a business and not a football club. A good year for the Glazers equates to strong profits and not trophies."

Another sarcastically added: "I really liked the '35% off on merch' bio. That really epitomises what Manchester United are really about while our rivals care about winning."

Following the mass uproar, the club then changed the bio to 'The home of Manchester United' before altering it again to 'Change. The. Game. #IWD2022' in honour of International Women's Day.

In response to the amendment, one fan accused the club of being a "shambles" and "terrified of losing their money".

The tweet read: "They took it down. LOL. Shows how frightened they are of us fans when we work together for something. They are terrified of losing their money. Shambles of a club."

United's dismal defeat to City coupled with Arsenal's triumph over Watford means Ralf Rangnick's side dropped to fifth, a point behind the Gunners having played three games more.
