Around 20 fans blocked the entrance to the training ground before entering and posing with banners which read: ‘We decide when you play’, ‘Glazers out’ and ‘51% MUFC 20’.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to the protestors, who entered the site shortly after 9am (BST), before they were escorted off the premises.

The fans entered the club’s training ground before the majority of the first team had arrived and blocked both entrances as they stood with their banners. The ‘51%’ banner is in reference to fans holding the majority of voting rights at the club, a model which is common in German football.

The protestors made their way into the training ground to the first-team pitches where they posed for pictures with their banners and demanded to speak to Solskjaer.
