MANCHESTER UNITED have stepped up their security at Carrington after fans broke into the training complex yesterday.

Even United gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was stopped by two burly high-vis-wearing men.
He was asked to remove his sunglasses to prove he really was the Red Devils leader.
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 Solskjaer came and spoke to them.
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’.
