Manchester United fans protest at Carrington training ground

Angry Manchester United fans gathered at the club’s Carrington training facility on Thursday and blocked both entrances in protest of the Glazer family.

Local media reports about 20 fans breached security before unfurling banners reading ‘We decide when you play’, ‘Glazer out’ and ‘51% MUFC 20’.

A club statement said the group eventually left the ground after manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer spoke to them.

“At approximately 9am this morning, a group gained access to the club training ground,” United said in a statement.

“The manager and others spoke to them. Buildings were secure and the group has now left the site.”

According to United fan forum Red Issue, the group was initially told by a facilities manager that Solskjaer wouldn’t talk to them because they were ‘intimidating’.

But the group reportedly stayed until he spoke, along with support staff and former players Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher, as well as midfielder Nemanja Matic.

Solskjaer is said to have told the group that the Glazer family loves the club.

The Glazer family was a leading force behind the European Super League proposal that saw six English clubs sign up, and withdraw within 48 hours after fierce backlash from supporters.

United co-chairman Joel Glazer eventually “apologised unreservedly” for United’s involvement in the European Super League, saying the club “got it wrong”.
