Security Guards Trebled At Old Trafford Ahead Of Liverpool Clash

Staff were shocked by the ease at which the furious fans were able to breach security at Carrington, and as a result, the club have acted in bringing in more security guards, as well as increasing the protection of senior executives, according to the Daily Mail.
