Man Utd ban players from signing autographs at Carrington training ground

Posted on


Manchester United have reportedly been forced to prevent their players from stopping to sign autographs outside the club’s Carrington training ground due to safety concerns.

The club have become concerned about fans who regularly converge near a blind bend at the junction of Sinderland Lane and Birch Road, which is close to the rear entrance of the training base.

Club chiefs have seen the number of fans increase this summer due to the school holidays, and it is not uncommon that groups of as many as 50 fans gather to get a glimpse of their heroes.

But the club feel the situation poses too great a safety risk to fans’ safety while the large crowds also present issues for the local farms and residents, according to The Telegraph .

And to prevent fans from standing near the entrance, Old Trafford chiefs have erected a sign warning them from convening in a bid to get autogrpahs.

The sign reads: “Players are not permitted to stop and sign autographs due to danger on the road. No congregating.”

It’s not all doom and gloom for autograph-hunting Red Devils fans as they will still be able to gather at the other entry point to Carrington on Isherwood Road.

“Any successful team will have to build from the back and have a foundation to play from,” Solskjaer told United’s official website .

“We always say ‘you have to earn the right to win a game of football’. You earn it by defending well, you have a foundation and hopefully a settled team.

“Hopefully, we won’t have to make too many changes. Over the last few years, I’ve always had the feeling there’s been so many players with bad luck concerning injuries.

“Both Jose [Mourinho] and Louis [van Gaal], maybe even David [Moyes], had to chop and change the back four, especially the centre-backs. Hopefully we can get a settled line-up.”
