A group consisting of some 20 odd Manchester United fans broke into the club’s training facility at Carrington at 9 am on Thursday and made themselves heard with multiple banners that read ‘Glazers out’, ‘we decide when you play’ and ‘51% MUFC 20′.
The supporters of the English giants were protesting against their American owners, the Glazer family, who were forced to make an apology after pushing the club into joining the rogue European Super League.
The group also came face to face with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff and soon left the facility after meeting the manager.

The Glazer family ownership has come under huge criticism from the fans in the past few years as Manchester United has seen their stocks fall rapidly after the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson.
They are no longer the force they used to be in the Premier League and the Champions League as fans reckon it is time for the Americans to let go of the club.
Manchester United soon released a statement on the incident this morning: “At approximately 9am this morning a group gained access to the club training ground.
“The manager and others spoke to them. Buildings were secure and the group has now left the site.”
