LONDON (AP) — Fan protests have disappeared as Manchester United adds to its trophy room.

Many United fans have opposed the Glazer family since it bought the club in 2005, for years showing their disdain for the Americans by wearing green-and-gold scarves in honor of the club's original colors. But after five Premier League championships and one Champions League title, those angry voices have silenced and the red is returning to Old Trafford.

Three years ago, many matches were marred by protests, mainly because of the club's huge debt. But chief executive David Gill says the club has slashed the debt as it turns its attention to defending the 20th league title, clinched Monday night.
