Sir Bobby Charlton feels the Glazer family have done nothing to warrant any criticism since taking over Manchester United.

The former United forward believes the club have made solid progress on the pitch since the Glazers bought the club almost exactly a year ago. Despite the recent health worries of Malcolm Glazer, who is currently recovering after suffering a second stroke in a matter of weeks, Charlton is optimistic about the future of United.

Charlton, speaking ahead of the Laureus World Sport Awards in Barcelona, told PA Sport: "Everyone said the club was going to be in turmoil, but it hasn´t been the case. They (the Glazers) have just got on with their business, and they have not been a hindrance at all."
