Man Utd Beef Up Security At Training Ground After Fans Protest

Manchester United have ramped up their security at Carrington after fans broke into the training complex yesterday.

As the players arrived for drills today, two security guards greeted them at the entrance.

Even United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was stopped by two burly high-vis-wearing men.

He appeared to be asked to remove his sunglasses to prove he really was the Red Devils leader.

The protest came just 24 hours after United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward announced he was leaving his position at the end of the season.

And on Wednesday, United co-chairman Joel Glazer apologised to fans for United’s part as a founding member of the attempted breakaway league, which was universally hated by fans from all clubs.

The Mirror is reporting that the anti-Glazer movement plot to make another stand a week on Sunday when United host fellow ESL rebels Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Thousands of fans will march from Manchester city centre to the stadium and make their voices heard beside the statues of Sir Matt Busby, Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and George Best.

The report adds a joint-protest alongside Liverpool supporters – usually fierce rivals – has been canned now that both teams announced their withdrawal from the ESL.
