It has been a busy morning at Carrington already, with anti-Glazer protests underway.

A small group of fans blocked the entrance to Manchester United’s Carrington training ground, with a banner which read, ‘We decide when you play’.

This is in response to United’s disastrous efforts to start up a European Super League, which led to co-owner Joel Glazer issuing an apology to supporters.

The fans also gained access to the Carrington training ground, displaying a Glazers Out banner.

The other banner called for a 51 per cent fan ownership rule to be enacted by the Government, similar to in German football.

As per BBC Sport’s Simon Stone, the situation has now been defused.


He reports the supporters have left the training ground, after talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, coach Michael Carrick and technical director Darren Fletcher, as well as midfielder Nemanja Matic.

The group have made their point effectively and United’s training session is expected to continue as normal.

The mounting protests are a sign of the anger towards the Glazer family which has existed since 2005, which is now bubbling back up again.

The botched Super League efforts and Ed Woodward’s impending departure at the end of this year, gives some hope that extra pressure may force the Glazers to sell, or for the Government to bring in legislation to push them out.
