A group of Manchester United fans broke into the club’s Carrington training ground on Thursday morning.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was reportedly ‘disturbed’ by the angry supporters who broke into Manchester United‘s training ground on Thursday – and he was forced to cancel the session as a result. A group of fans were seen blocking the main entrance to Carrington with their clear intent being to show their anger and frustration towards the Glazers.
Banners read ‘Glazers out’ and ‘51% MUFC’ with around 20 fans breaching security at the training complex.
They had even managed to get onto the training pitch with police being called to try and intervene.
Eventually, Solskjaer, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher and Nemanja Matic addressed the supporters who later dispersed.
But the Daily Star claim that Solskjaer was left ‘disturbed’ by the incident as he had fears the supporters would return.
It is said that Solskjaer and those involved in helping disperse the fans soon came to the agreement to cancel the day’s training session.
The United boss was reportedly ‘concerned about the welfare of his stars’.
However, the cancelled training session will come as a blow to Solskjaer’s preparations heading into Sunday’s match against Leeds.
Protests have been taking place up and down the country this week following the launch and subsequence collapse of the European Super League proposals.
United will be reportedly stepping up security measures for Sunday’s trip to Leeds as they fear more backlash.
But former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has taken aim at the Red Devils supporters who broke into the training ground on Thursday morning.
“The fans have done what they needed to do… but the Manchester United situation is probably more unique than anyone else, because they loathe the Glazers,” he told talkSPORT.
“They loathe the way they bought the club and everybody knows from a business point of view it was a smart as paint move, but for the fans who have watched the Glazers effectively fund their club with its own money, it causes uproar.
“And of course you’ve got a team that hasn’t won anything for eight years, and certain activists have taken an opportunity.
“You can’t go breaking into training grounds. You just can’t.
“I mean, you can, but ultimately then you deserve to get your collar felt.
“I don’t think this is productive, I don’t see the point of it.
“The aim was to get these six rogues to concentrate their mind on the reality of their greater responsibility, and that’s been done.”
