Man Utd fans to hold more Glazer Out protests after training ground break-in following showdown Solskjaer talks

MANCHESTER UNITED fans are reportedly planning another Glazer Out protest after breaking into the training ground.

Around 20 supporters stormed Carrington on Thursday to voice their anger at the club's owners and their attempt to join the breakaway European Super League.

The group made it on to the first-team pitch and refused to leave until manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came and spoke to them.

And according to the Mirror, the anti-Glazer movement plot to make another stand a week on Sunday when United host fellow ESL rebels Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Thousands of fans will march from Manchester city centre to the stadium and make their voices heard beside the statues of Sir Matt Busby, Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and George Best.

The report adds a joint-protest alongside Liverpool supporters – usually fierce rivals – has been canned now that both teams announced their withdrawal from the ESL.

The supporters who breached the security to get into the AON training complex on Thursday were part of the Manchester Education Committee – the same group that confronted Wayne Rooney in 2010 and targeted Ed Woodward's home in January last year.

Police were called but stood off when boss Solskjaer – supported by Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher and Nemanja Matic – met with the fans.

Asked how he could trust United co-chairman Joel Glazer again after his leading role in the ESL plans, Solskjaer insisted 'Joel loves this club'.

The claim was met with derision with a number of protestors firing back saying ‘he doesn’t love this club he loves the money’.


During the exchanges, which lasted just over five minutes, it was pointed out to Solskjaer that back in 2005 he was a patron of protest group Shareholders United and voiced his opposition to the Glazers' imminent takeover.

They asked why he could use his voice as a player then but not as the manager now. He struggled to answer that one.

The group were pictured holding up banners saying ‘Glazers out’, ‘We decide when you play’ and another which read '51% MUFC 20' which refers to the German-style ownership of clubs where fans have a stake.

The group had blocked the back of the route into Carrington with a van and congested the front of the lane with their parked cars.

It left a number of United stars stuck trying to get to training.

United play their first match since their dramatic U-turn – hours after Woodward resigned as executive vice-chairman – when they travel to Leeds on Sunday.
