Man Utd boss Solskjaer, Matic address protesting fans

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has addressed protesting fans at Carrington this morning.

Solskjaer spoke to fans who entered the club's training ground at Carrington on Thursday to protest against the Glazer family's ownership.

Over a dozen fans entered the complex but have now left.

They had banners saying 'Glazers Out' and '51% MUFC'.

Co-chairman Joel Glazer would have been a vice-chairman of the European Super League before United withdrew on Tuesday after a furious backlash.

"At approximately 9am this morning a group gained access to the club training ground," said United in a statement.

"The manager and others spoke to them. Buildings were secure and the group has now left the site."

Solskjaer was joined by coach Michael Carrick, technical director Darren Fletcher and midfielder Nemanja Matic in speaking to the fans, who were pictured at the security entrance, outside the main entrance and on a training pitch.
