Manchester United Fans Protesting Against The Glazers Have Blocked Training Ground Entrances

Manchester United fans have blocked both entrances to the club's Carrington training ground, as they protest against the Glazer family's ownership of the club.


The fallout from the European Super League saw many fans turn against the owners of their club and many United fans have already long been against the Glazers stewardship.

The Americans, who bought the 13 times Premier League winners in 2005, lost one of their main backers this week when Ed Woodward announced he would be leaving the club, after the Super League all but folded on Tuesday.


Fans on social media, as well as those outside of Elland Road and Stamford Bridge this week, helped bring down the end of the competition and now United fans are protesting in person.

A group have blocked off both entrances to the Carrington training centre in Trafford, and have banners emblazoned with 'Glazers Out.'


According to reports, players began arriving at the training ground around 9 am and some were caught up in the protests and struggled to get into the complex.

Security was increased around Old Trafford yesterday, with club chiefs expecting that any protest would take place outside of the stadium, with United not playing at home for another week, when they host Roma in the Europa League semi final.


United co-chairman Joel Glazer hasn't been seen at a game in over two years and the coward couldn't even put out the original statement saying the club were joining the Super League on the club's social media accounts.

On Wednesday, after United and all the other Premier League 'big six' had pulled out of the competition, Glazer posted an open apology on Twitter.

Clearly the fans have decided empty apologies won't be enough!
