Man United Ban Drones From Training Ground To Stop Spies

Man United Ban Drones From Training Ground To Stop Spies

Manchester United have banned drones from their training ground ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The club have issued a no-drone order at their training base in Carrington, according to the Mirror.

The measure has been taken to prevent spies watching over their sessions for next season.

The fear is that title-rivals could use drones to work out tactical plans being played out at the ground.

It seems as though the club are pulling out all the stops in their quest to bring the Premier League back to Old Trafford.

England's most successful club will be hoping to get their hands on the league silverware for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager.

The last time that happened was 2012-13 season, when Robin van Persie was leading the line for the Red Devils. His 26 goals in the league helped the side win their 13th title, a Premier League record.

But it's been a tough time since then: David Moyes' tenure proved a flop and Louis van Gaal wasn't a great improvement, despite winning an F.A Cup.

Things looked up in Jose Mourinho's inaugural season, his side winning the League Cup, Community Shield and Europa League, granting the club passage back into the Champions League.

But the 2017/18 season saw the Red Devils crash out of the Champions League in the round of 16 to Sevilla, lose the F.A Cup final to a Chelsea side with only Eden Hazard running the show, and finish runners-up to their close rivals Manchester City, who were deserved winners with their record points total.

But minor details - such as banning drones - could enable the side to get back to their best. Well, probably not, but it's good to be optimistic, isn't it?
