Anchester United fans gathered outside the club’s training ground in Carrington on Friday to protest the ownership of the Glazer family.

Police were called in to step up security around the complex as 30 fans gathered to vent their frustration amid turgid form that saw United slip out of the top four and leave the club certain to end the season trophyless.

Another protest is planned for Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Norwich, with fans encouraged not to take their seats at Old Trafford until 17 minutes after kick-off, one minute for each year since the club was bought by the American owners.

Caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick was asked about the protests at his pre-match press conference and sympathized with the disgruntled fans.

“We all know that football is a game of passion and emotions,” he said. “We can all understand – I can understand our supporters being disappointed with our position in the table and the performance we showed at Everton. [losing 1-0]at least after conceding that first goal.

“But I still believe our supporters are some of the best, if not the best, in England and as long as they demonstrate peacefully and support the team in the stadium, they have the right to speak their mind.”
