Manchester United apologize after Swastika-style logo

Manchester United have issued an apology after a weekly email was sent out to supporters bearing a Swastika-style team logo and a phrase linked to Nazism.

In addition to the image, that bears a remarkable similarity to the logo of the German Nazi Party, the “United Uncovered” email carries the headline “New Order” – a term linked to Nazism after Adolf Hitler’s 1941 call for a European New Order – above images of key players Adnan Januzaj, David de Gea and Danny Welbeck.

The image immediately caused widespread outrage on Twitter and forced Manchester United – who play in the British Premier League—to issue the apology via their Head of Media, David Sternberg.

Sternberg tweeted “The creative is completely inappropriate; we apologise unreservedly and are taking appropriate internal action.”
