Man Utd ramp up security outside Carrington training ground with sniffer dogs after anti-Glazer protestsApril 17, 2022
MANCHESTER UNITED appeared to have ramped up security at their Carrington HQ amid fan protests.
Police with sniffer dogs were spotted outside the training ground earlier today in an attempt to stop any further issues.
A handful of supporters turned up at Carrington on Friday to demand the Glazer family sell up.
And they also had a message to the players that they are "not fit to wear the shirt".
Fans held up two banners, with others also letting off red flares outside the training centre.
Police were called in, but the protest was said to be "peaceful" with around 30 people present.

But that was followed by a huge anti-Glazer protest before and during the 3-2 win over Norwich.
Single-minded supporters descended upon Old Trafford yesterday waving banners and chanting anti-Glazer sentiments.
The protest continued inside the Theatre of Dreams, with some fans refusing to take their seats until the 17th minute – marking one minute for every year of Glazer ownership.
And United have now released a statement insisting they respect the fans’ right to voice their opinions.

It read: “We are working hard to create the conditions for renewed success on the pitch, while strengthening our engagement with fans.
“We respect the right of fans to voice their opinions peacefully and we will continue to listen to them, with the aim of working together to get the club back to where we all want to be: competing for trophies.”
The latest march was accompanied by various chants including “We want Glazers out”, although some were also heard saying “Joe Glazer’s gonna die”.
But there were plenty of cheers at full-time after Cristiano Ronaldo's scorching free-kick sealed his hat-trick and a 3-2 win against Norwich.
As for the Glazer family, supporters want to see major restructuring at board level in a bid to improve results on the pitch.
One fan said: "We just want to highlight what's happening. We want people to know this is not a good club.
"What the transfers do is to make the share price go up or attract sponsors.
"They are not football people. We are not even close. It's a shambles."
The Glazers hope to appease angry fans by appointing Erik ten Hag as Ralf Rangnick’s replacement shortly.
