enraged In the aftermath of the European Super League debacle, Manchester United supporters demonstrating against the Glazer family’s ownership blocked all entrances to the club’s Carrington training ground on Thursday morning.
After the club pulled out of the plans the day before, Joel Glazer, who was introduced as the European Super League vice-chairman when the bombshell announcement was made on Sunday, apologised in an open letter to all United fans on Wednesday.
“At approximately 9am this morning, a group gained access to the club training ground,” read a United statement on Thursday.
Around 20 protesters bearing banners entered Carrington and made their way to the training complex’s reception and the first-team training room, but they did not enter any houses. The police were sent to the training facility.
Assistant manager Michael Carrick, technical director Darren Fletcher, and midfielder Nemanja Matic joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in addressing the crowd, which then dispersed.
